That is kind of what I've been thinking.  I think we could dispense with
docbook entirely, simplifying the toolchain and making the template files
easier to read and edit.  Something like that would also make it easy to
keep the regular .txt documents in a structured form and to integrate them
into the "formatted" documents if it makes sense.

Jani, want to join us at LCA and talk about it? :)
