Did you find time to take a look on this?

I understand that there's some discussion behind the curtains regarding
the markdown support, but the cross-reference-hyperlink patch is also in
the same patch series. It doesn't change any text in the docbook unless
there's really a cross-reference link to it. Different from the markdown
support (when people start to use markdown to write docs it will be hard
to go back), the cross-link stuff doesn't require/create any change to
current documentation, it is pretty safe to use.

Would you mind to share your plans about this?
