Again, I would use existing tags rather than create your own for the
following reasons:

Expanding Docbook locks you into the version you expanded. You'll
have to export your adaptations to each new version of the DTD and
make sure it works as you expect them to.

You not only have to expand the DTD, you also have to create
customisation layers for the HTML and FO stylesheets. The stock
stylesheets know nothing of your changes so they won't be able ro act
upon them

For more information on changing the DTD, not the stylesheets, see
