Peter makea a good point, and I am not quite sure how unusual it is to 
maintain or recreate the toc 'by hand' (or script/xsl). With the nested 
toc and with the proper class there is always this nagging feeling that 
the toc could be incorrect.

And how unuasual is the 'manual' maintance of the toc? There must be 
quite few companies/people using the docbook outside the docbook/dssl/fo 
  setup who need to generate the toc one way or another.
