There might be a compability issue here though, since OOo currently generates
an angle in tens of degrees (!)

I think a solution would be to ask implementations to write out the unit, like draw:angle="63deg".
This way we could differ old-style values (like the undocumented 630) and new-style values (with the unit specified explicitely).

But then we would have a lack of consistency between the angle units where a unit should be specified
and those where it's implicit from the spec...
