It doesn't really, and the funniest part of it is that, after using it
for a while, I still find it a bit of an abstract.

First off let me apologize before hand in case I'm completely wrong

I find those two "definitions" of DocBook rather misguiding.  For all I
know, DocBook is a "document type definition", i.e. a set of "definining
rules" for some elements to be used with some "typographic languages"
such as (and so far limited to) SGML and XML.

Of course you've been careful enough to use "kind of ..." and to write
language in between quotations here, but still...
