Subject: Re: [docbook] marking up a play

No, I don't think you are. We have considered this and will probably
add this at some point in the near future. We have an element that we
use for extracts but I've been considering 'play' (or possibly 'drama'
to keep our options open) - at the same hierarchical level as part.

We have separate wrappers for poems, so it does make some sort of
symmetrical sense.

Not rare in my bit of the publishing world :)
