I agree that this is a good idea.

I was surprised to see that Joanne Hackos sent out an email that I  
perceived as rather inflammatory about how DocBook was the "same-old  
same-old" and that it doesn't consider other information types.  This  
DocBook vs. DITA debate is somewhat silly because content can be  
authored modularly in either system.  The names of the tags aren't  
important: the delivery/production process and writing style are.

There is a lot of misinformation floating around.  We should help to  
correct that.
