I don't claim to be an expert, but having dealt with similar things, I 
agree with Jeff:

Define your own xml representations (I'm a big RELAX NG fan myself) for 
each type, or draw on already-existing ones.   I don't think DocBook et 
al will work well here.  I suspect you might want to write your own 
xslt stylesheets, depending on how complex your documents are, and how 
many different types you have.

The content. You'll have more flexibility (say you want to output to 
HTML, for example).
