Yes, that might be an issue. 

And obviously, since there is a bit of a learning curve with DocBook, I
would not want to spend too much time on installation/implementation

I am a little disappointed that DocBook does not run out of the box on
linux systems.  

Or maybe it is just debian?

Also, as a general remark, I am rather surprised that I seem to be the
only one posting to this mailing list.
