I don't know what you want, but I think you can get some sort of 
"different views with different levels of detail" using the combination
of LinuxDoc DTD and sgml-tools v1.

Please refer "SGML-Tools User's Guide 1.0, 10 Nov 1997" written by
Matt Welsh. Updated by Greg Hankins, rewritten by Eric S. Raymond.

Go to " ・ 3.9 Conditionalization" in "3. Writing Documents With SGML-Tools".
It explains the usage of <#if> </#if>, and "-D" option. Please not the original
sgml-tools 1.0.9 has a bug such that it can not handle multi definition (it can
not understand when more than one "-D" options are specified). This bug has been
found by a user of Debian package for potato, and fixed in the current (1.0.9-12).
