I disagree.

Mary has been working hard in ensuring our user community sees all 
specifications in "one way" as the published work 
products.  Absolutely we need consistency there.

But production?  Horses for courses.  Different strokes for different 
folks.  Any other metaphor you wish to inject here ... the point is 
that for the creative side each specification author will have their 
optimum editing environment and providing a myriad of tools 
supporting as wide a range of editing preferences will help 
committees produce the single consistent work product that our user 
community will find very valuable.

Office product users can use ODF.

DITA users can use DITA.

I get to use DocBook.

We look to Mary for the end work product result and she ensures 
consistency for our user community.
