Subject: RE: [docbook] Add "danger" to the list of possible admonitions?

For the curious, here's what the DITA 1.3 specification allows for the @type attribute on <note> (second subsection on this page):


The value "other" allows extensibility in conjunction with another attribute @othertype:

<para><command>drop lamp</command></para>
<caution role="fatal">
  <para>It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.</para>

If there is a need to match with an existing standard/hierarchy/ontology
I'd rather see it done in an enumerated attribute than an element type.
