If I focus on maintenance, I would just use the same XML parsing
infrastructure that we use everywhere else for file import purposes, and
the checker would be in C++. We do report line and column numbers when
ODF import fails at a specific location.

But I didn't want to suggest a rewrite if you decided to go with Python
for some reason.
