Yeah, to be explicit, in DocBook 4.4, they have the same children, but
not the same attributes. chapter/@label but no preface/@label :-(
[that's a big bummer for me] in DocBook 4.4. This is "fixed" in
DocBook 5, so that's why it's may be a moot point to differentiate
between chapter|preface|appendix anymore.

I like that.
