I don't know the details of this situation, but I am sure you can get to a point where you either have 1/2 the screen colored or only 1/3 of it or something along those lines. That should be noticeable to the eye. If not, you can then do a sampling of a screen area and see if roughly the shaded area is 50%, 33% 25% or whatever else would be the case.

Ok we are nailed right off the start line.  Most parts of ODF don't
use pixels.   They use relative measurements like cm pt inch real
world distances.   Simply put for over 90 Percent of ODF this is
unworkable.   When you are in the world of conversions you have to
allow for rounding errors on scaling.

Layout Perfect or Typesetting Perfect what every you want to call it
were there is tolerance for error to a small amount is workable.

+ - 2pt is doable  Virtual printing.   I guess + - 2 pt no more
anywhere.    That is just creating a overlay transparency image to go
over the Virtual printed document.  Could be a block out with a square
block char inside it or the reverse colour out area that everything
should be under.  Even processing of the produced PDF or PS file would
be possible.   Screen processing would be more complex yet still
doable with careful planing.
