This does not replace packaging. New DocBook packages should maintain
the XML Catalogs, it's the case already for RawHide ones

Definitely, ah, that's interesting. I tell you one must create
XML Catalogs and root them in /etc/xml/catalog .
A Catalog is a global system wide resource ! Look at /etc/sgml
on your system, and tell me that again !

This is a temporary solution until packages installs XML Catalogs
for people building and formatting docs.
