If I understand correctly, you want to have the schema definition (RNG
or DTD) of DocBook XML changed. This is something that really should
go to the DocBook technical committee. Maybe they can allow the same
elements in the 'contrib' element, that are possible in 'para'.
There is, of course, the possibility to customise DocBook (and DocBook
was somehow designed to be customisable), but I don't really like the
idea of Debian using a customised instead of the standard DocBook
schema. IMHO, we already have more than enough bugs in the DocBook
tools in their standard form to justify that.
