I'm just getting up to speed with DocBook v5.0 and have a very basic
question. Does DocBook support substitutable strings?

We have a set of manuals that need to be rebranded for various OEM
deals, primarily WRT product names.

For example, consider the following sentence from our current documentation:

"In many deployments, a {{STORAGEPRODUCT}} cluster may be isolated on an 
internal network, protecting it from undesired interaction with the host 
network, and also protecting the host network from services like PXE 
boot and multicast UDP that may interfere with other network resources."

Currently, before transformation, we do a global search/replace for
{{STORAGEPRODUCT}} (and many other strings) to manually replace them
with the vendor's product name.

Surely there must be a better way to do this. Can anyone point me in the 
right direction?
