Daniel, I think it would be wonderful if you did that: this
implementation plan sounds orthogonal and non-interfering.

I think it could be quite useful in some circumstances, usually those
circumstances in which XML is the right tool :-).  Norman Walsh has
already implemented a "DocBook in XML" DTD, and jade now supports XML.

I'm not online now, so I cannot read the w3c license, but if it's
GPL-compatible then you could just go ahead.

**BUT** we certainly prefer that, and you could tell your bosses that
your code must either be GPL/LGPL-ed or it will have problems (maybe
they would be happy to let you release it under two licenses).
