This is great news! Thanks!

I would like to suggest an additional idea: 

Currently, the "DocBook XSL Stylesheets: Reference Documentation"[1] contains 
all the parameters for HTML, FO, manpages, etc. Wouldn't it make sense to 
include the EPUB2/3 parameters too?

Most of the parameters are already documented (refering to HTML). However, 
there are some parameters which are specific to EPUB. It would be helpful if 
users know what can be adapted.
