I've also been looking to use Visio stencils, without stencil import support, LibreOffice Draw is much more difficult to use.

The answer is, and always has been, NO.

LibVisio Support for the stencils works in theory, or so i believe, but nothing has been done to use this LibreOffice.

I was able to partially get the contents,

used shell + saxonb on the result from the output produced from libvisio. The tool is a debug tool, so you have to compile to run it.

2013-02-10 18:19:35 +0200 asked a question LibreOffice 4.0, Draw, Ubuntu x86_64, Any method to import vss/vsx Visio stencils?

I've installed the recently released LibreOffice 4.0, on my Ubuntu x86_64 workstation, and I'm unable to import Visio Stencils. Does any possible way to utilize Visio stencils exist?

When I mention Visio stencils, I'm specifically referring to the VSS and VSX formats. Although if anyone knows anything about Visio 2013 format support, VSDX and VSSX, I'd appreciate the status update. Currently I've successfully imported a handful of VSD files, and was generally impressed.

I'm completely aware of the difficult history, using proprietary Visio formats, so any related explanation is unnecessary. Additionally all the computers I'm able to access run GNU/Linux distributions, so using Windows for a work-around impossible.
