The primary reason for this work is to get rid of fop as a dependency to
create pdfs.
As far as I'm aware, at this point there is a single (Free) processor
that can handle XSLT 2.0, so overall the situation wouldn't be much
better for the purpose of helping the FreeBSD community to move to an
XSL-based DB processing flow.
Yes, the goal of my proposed project is to improve the acceptance of DocBook, that is, providing more support for tooling. If DocBook can be used exclusively with free/open source tools, it can be suitable for open source and/or commercial but low-budget projects. I think using XSLT 2.0 would also be a bit limiting because of the somewhat limited support of XSLT 2.0. Anyway, this project is not just to help FreeBSD but FreeBSD is a good indicator of success since it is a big open source project, which has an extensive documentation.
