Tags can be easily replaced (even using regexps) from SGML to Docbook-XML.
These are the notes I took while doing it for Spanish:

SGML tag --> Docbook-XML tag
file     --> filename
prgn     --> command
em       --> emphasis
tt       --> literal
ref id   --> xref linkend
url id   --> ulink url
var      --> replaceable
package   -> systemitem role="package"> </systemitem>

True, some tags have attributes which change, but the global substitution is
doable for many of those.

Clytie, feel free to poke me (out of the list) if you need help.
