Actually, with a few indirect steps, LaTeX can be converted back to
docbook: just run latex2html or tex4ht on the LaTeX file, then convert
the resulting XML file to docbook and you are done.
It is, perhaps, useful to use "tidy" just after the conversion from
LaTeX to HTML, so that it can generate proper XHTML, which can, then, be
converted more easily to docbook.
Just keep in mind that some steps may be easier with a little manual
I do, OTOH, most of my work with LaTeX as I already have quite a good
set of macros of my own, am certainly more proficient with it than I am
with all this XML thing.
I am open to good text editors with XML support, though.
