The doctype for the OASIS approved version will have /OASIS/ versus /IBM/
to differentiate the unversioned doctype.

I realize that bookmap hasn't been official until 1.1, but there have
been big changes in that model from the demo. Content valid against one
version will not against the other.

So far, the biggest issue I've seen is with title, but there may be
others. The different public identifiers would alleviate any concerns
over compatibility, because you know what version you are validating

DocBook's naming and versioning for v5.0 is documented here for those

Best regards,
