Yes, but, AFAIK, typical documents compliant with v5 will be more or
less the same than document compliant with v4, except for a few
(hopefully rare) cases?

The same tools, I hope so. After all, Docbook v5 should require for
transformation only a few changes in the stylesheets, no?

For the validation, I already use a RelaxNG version of Docbook and
nxml on Emacs. It works fine. xsltproc works fine with RelaxNG schemas
in XML syntax (but Docbook has still its DTD, as a fallback, I do not
know if it will be the case with v5).
