However, it is a chunking stylesheet, so any template changes require paying careful attention to import precedence for them to work.  Generally that requires two separate customization files, but the epub/docbook.xsl needs to be rearranged for that to work.  Based on the experience I gained from creating the epub 3 stylesheet, I plan to rearrange the files in the  epub directory for EPUB 2 output to make it easier to customize.

It might be worth pointing out that if you are planning to convert this to Kindle, the HTML TOC is required.
