[Libreoffice] Document( header=table, body=table )

Normally, a header is a single line. For some documents, part of
that single line could be an image (preferably vector).
The document I am playing with, is guaranteed to be composed of 12
or more lines of content in the header (typically as 4 tables on
top of each other). All examples I've seen, have the header being
less than half a page, but no guarantee on that. Obviously, if
the header is more than 1 page long, there is no way to typeset
things as the page is too small.
I have (effectively) reproduced the document in LaTeX. It is not
The parent documents are .doc. I can get content using various
Perl modules, getting structured content doesn't seem to be
possible. I can save at least 1 of these documents as ODT. As
ODT is nominally all text (if compressed), I thought that perhaps
turning a document into a template (by changing specific data into
known strings) might work.
I suppose people familiar with ODT will not be surprised to hear
that I cannot find my known strings in either content.xml or
manifest.zip (my hope was it is content.xml).
I had loaded up a document into perl using OpenOffice::OODoc, and
generated the XPath object. The file is nominally 35kB, getting
an almost 8 MB dump of the XPath object wasn't expected.
How should a person use an ODT document as a template to produce
versions of the document?
