I would propose to base it on the XHTML-1.1 DTD from the beginning, to get rid 
of that deprecated @lang and @name attributes. Apart from that and the Ruby 
support XHTML-1.1 and XHTML-1.0-Strict are near the same:


Note that the @style attribute has been marked also as deprecated although is 
still valid to use it on 1.1.

I agree. The final look is a matter of personal choice. Maybe a css/ 
sub-directory containing contributed CSS example files would be better than 
shipping a default one.

IMHO, there is no other way to keep the semantic DB meaning of  <set>, <book>, 
<article>, <part>, <chapter>, <preface>,  <sect*>, and maybe few other tags, 
than creating a <div id="@id" class="local.name(.) | 
@user_selected_attribute"> for each one of them.

I would say "generate a DIV only for that DB block elements that are 
containers for several mixed DB block elements"
