Inkscape's native format is .svg, but I also suggest a different
Boxes are easy, arrows not so much, especially curved or crossed
arrows. A program like OODraw or LODraw already has canned arrow shapes
for diagrams (Flow chart and diagramming apps also have these shapes,
(i.e., Dia)). With Inkscape you'll have to end cap line segments or
create arrow shapes with polygons.
The other consideration is that you say you want to create a document.
To me this sounds like layout, combining text and graphics.
Try creating your graphics in OODraw or LODraw and implement them in
OOWriter or LOWriter. I expect the integration in the Office apps will
be more intuitive and/or efficient.
