If you add, when written to disk as an ODF 'package' it helps?
I can check zip format
I can unzip it.
Check content
Parse XML
Validate XML
run other logic tests on XML
But again you need some sort of profile.

I don't think what Dave describes here can still be called an Acid Test (too many steps, need for a parser...).  Probably the closest to an "Output Acid Test" would be:
- open the standard Acid Test file
- save it
- open the saved Acid Test file with a reference application known to be "correct".

In any case, I would recommend to clearly indicates in the TC charter that there are 2 aspects to be validated when we talk about interoperability:
- the ability to correctly handle valid ODF files
- the ability to produce valid ODF files.
