it seems that name 'Pictures' is not part of Open Document format, but
it is usually name that, at least in document I've seen.

I think the difference is in some commands, like `cp` and `mv` vs.
`move` and `copy`.

I think that this would need to modify the source code of `t4ht`
command. This code and code of `tex4ht` command seems even cryptic
than sources of `.4ht` files, maybe because I don't know `c` language

Maybe `tex4ht-env.tex` could be edited to produce some template like
(just a dummy sample):

.html {{cp}} {{src-file}} {{dest-dir}}

and then different versions with some templating engine such as
`Mustache` could be produced.

Other possibility is the one I use in make4ht, where I try to bypass
t4ht and process instructions in the `.lg` file with Lua. tex4ebook
uses this approach and work which it does is similar to the work
needed to create the `.odt` file.
