Not sure about sxw but odt documents have versioning support built in. 
And you can see differencies between various versions and even against 
another file. I found this feature very useful :) Should we migrate 
documents to odt format at some point? This way we could easily compare 
how, for example, TSRef changed between different typo3 versions (odt 
versioning is explicit: you must tell OO that you want a new version).

SVN locking:

It is even possible to mark file as "need lock", svn will check it out 
read-only. Locking will make it readable for the user.

far more than our abilities." (A.P.W.B.D.)
