Subject: Limited Legalnotice?


I'm wondering about the legalnotice[1] element and observed some limiting  

1. Currently, legalnotice is (more or less) only useful in  
   *infos, but cannot be used as a division element similar 
   to chapter, appendix, part, or even book.

2. The legalnotice in its current incarnation doesn't allow
   any substructures.

The reason why I'm asking is that I have some open source licenses which 
contain substructures. These licenses need to be included in the book. At the 
moment, I use appendix for this task. However, from a semantic point of view, 
a legalnotice would be more appropriate. Unfortunately, legalnotice is too 
limited for this task as stated above.

I don't suggest to change that, but I would like to know what's the reason 
behind this (probably DocBook's history?)

Thanks! :-)
