No doubt, this is a really good thing. Although I see a danger here: A
isn't docbook enabled and writes a document using B
translates the document into the "official docbook format". C makes some
changes in the docbook file as he regards that as the "official" source
file. From now on, A isn't able to maintain his own document any more,
as the current version is only available as docbook.

Exactly this happened with the "Module writer's guide", where A == me.
And it's a pain for me to not be able to fix the things in that document
that are oboleted.
