Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Please respond: adding generic sibling to high-levelbook components

In absence of any further responses, I think I will recommend an element 
called "bookunit" for this purpose. Now the question should be asked: 
What content model should this follow? The same model as 
Chapter/Appendix/Preface or Dedication?

Opinions? Other name suggestions?

Thanks and best regards,
