Umm, I don't know if this works for real, I was hoping to get around to 
experimenting in the future, but I read someplace that 
with a mixed content document structured as follows -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<book version="5.0" xmlns="http://docbook.org/ns/docbook";

   ... main DocBook stuff ...
   ... followed by trailing xhtml script element ...
  <xhtml:script type="text/javascript" src="dbk2htmltrans.js" />

- potentially you could use javascript and the DOM model within the 
browser to map the docbook into HTML and render it. I vaguely recall
that the script element had to be at the end, because it was executed
immediately after it was encountered, so otherwise the document 
would not be entirely loaded. 
If it actually works then possibly you could generate internal hyperlinks.

Truly a shot in the dark ...
