No. We can do something like:
DocBook XML -> .pot
DocBook XML + .pot -> Translated DocBook XML
DocBook SGML -> .pot
DocBook SGML + .pot -> Translated DocBook SGML
The actual format/structure of the document doesn't change.

It expects the input to be in the 'C' locale (of course), and the output

This is up to the doc guys. Any comments?

What's the difference between it and xmllint?
