Not sure how it would help with Atom?
Perhaps to create the inserted html?

The wrapper is atom, not docbook, which I publish directly.

I have some code which generates the 'wrapper'
$new tag "Longer title" generates

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<entry xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom";
xmlns:xhtml="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";> <title>Longer title</title>
        <name>Dave Pawson</name>
        <email>  .... email adds </email>
    <category term="tag" label="Longer title"/>

    <link href="http://www.dpawson.co.uk/nodesets/100718.xml";
    <content type="xhtml">
        <div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";>
            <p> </p>

Then I just type html into the div, as html.
I use emacs nxml-mode for authoring.... but nvdl for validation. 
Then run a build script, using xslt.

As you can see, some info is required. I use the date as the key 'hook'
with tag and title coming from the command line.

From the above, you can see that the html header from docbook is all

No, just strikes me as 'I have a hammer' it all looks like 
a nail? 

I don't really see how docbook can help with a blog distributed in atom?
