are you aware of
It's an java based xml editor with WYSIWYG. The standard edition is free.
I belive its a good way to lower the barrier to write DocBook for the not so
Developers probably continue to use their text editor ;) (like me)

I'll get started putting your text into the DocBook
and submit a patch.
I particularly like the way you've removed 'Dialog
windows are associated with interactive processes.'
That sentence deserves to die painfully. :)
Are there any work around to have this kind of
colaborative work in the
documentation in other projects?
I think that there is a long-term goal to have the
master copy of the documentation in a sort of wiki
that can produce both the HTML for viewing on the web,
and the DocBook for building into GNOME.
I suspect that is a very long way off.
It's also a bit of a chicken and egg situation:
without good tools to write docs, people are put off
from helping because they lack the technical know-how
or it's too much of a hassle to set up and get
started. And with rubbish out-dated documentation,
there isn't much incentive to improve the tools that
go around it.
