IMHO SGML is losing ground in favor of XML. GNOME Help files are already
DocBook/XML (AFAIK KDE Help also). So there is definitely precedence,
and providing soma automatic, user-selectable DocBook/XML -> HTML
translation would have meaning for dwww integraton. The other option is
to say that GNOME/KDE can already display DocBook/XML without the HTML
conversion phase, so allow DocBook/XML as an alternative of HTML in the
policy. Maybe this is just wishful thinking.
