Hi Joachim, I can't give an absolute recommendation but I've
successfully migrated to a DocBook 5.0 toolchain (vim instead of
emacs, sorry) and my current employers and converting around about
1000 book titles (all sorts of trade titles) to a schema based on
DocBook 5.0. They seem to have confidence that it'll work (of course,
so do I as made the recommendation).
