Subject: db 5 and Dita anyone?

Eliot is running comments on DITA and docbook when choosing an XML
vocabulary, concluding

DITA is the best answer for any XML-based document-centric application 
I've seen.


His last para is interesting.

why doesn't DocBook simply adopt DITA's specialization mechanism? It 
would cost DocBook almost nothing to add and add tremendous value. It 
would not require DocBook changing anything about its current markup 
design, except to possibly back-form some base types that are currently 
not explicit in DocBook but would be useful as a specialization base. 
But that would only make DocBook cleaner.

I'm not a DITA user. It appears Eliot hasn't looked at db5 either.
