I am told that many publishing houses routinely use LaTeX.  I have dealt
with one (Springer).  One catch, however, might be that dblatex's output
contains some LaTeX commands that refer to dblatex-specific stylesheets;

Introducing a LaTeX phase to a publishing house that is *not* already
familiar with it is of course a different problem...
