I guess the main feature would be that it's usable. ;-)

Actually, I really like the idea of docbook. Rather, I liked it when I
just had had a quick look at it. I'm not so sure now. My docbook files
all look so unreadable, and it's certainly hard to write:
      <funcdef>int <function>max</function></funcdef>
      <paramdef>int <parameter>int1</parameter></paramdef>
      <paramdef>int <parameter>int2</parameter></paramdef>

Of course, you don't have to use all this, but what's the point of
docbook then? I admit I still prefer groff-manpages, though my knowledge
of groff is limited.
