I was going to say that.
I personally either work with docbook or 'don't'.

If I'm working with docbook, then I either accept the stylesheets or
modify them (if I can) to suite.

Even if mods are 'docbook only', I'd still be happy (or roll my own),
since I'm either in 'docbook space' or not, I.e. I have never gone from
docbook to other than its html/pdf output formats, which is why I use
docbook in the first place.

I think I'm trying to say that this group has shown so much common sense
so far, I'd trust its judgement for a good while yet :-)

Your decision, I'll not knock it!
