Hmm, I don't quite agree. Whether <envar> stands for a variable or the 
value it references is an important semantic distinction, not just 
something you should care for when adding presentational markup.

And, as Norm repeatedly pointed out in the past, docbook being a 
documentation language, not a modeling language, I would not expect it 
doing variable lookup itself, i.e. I would expect to put values into the
respective places myself.
