Yes. It would be much like the xml-c14n spec. To steal from the xml-c14n

"[A set of] specification[s] that describes a method for generating a
physical representation, the canonical form, of an [ODF] document that
accounts for the permissible changes."

I'm writing "A set of" here because we'd need more than one. We'd need a
spec to canonicalize styles.xml, content.xml, the manifest, the zip file
(packing order of the files? it may already be in the zip spec. If so,
this could be skipped), etcetera.
