I don't think so. 
sgml-tools is something that works with SGML and not with one or two
specific DTDs (that's what LinuxDoc and DocBook are). You changing the
command name now will cause more trouble, IMHO... What we need is to
have a tool that can work with both DTDs that we are using. If it can
work with others (such as TEI and others), then we can call it a SGML
tool. Otherwise it will be "some DTDs-tool"...

I think you should use this name. 

Are SGML-Tools-V1 being improved or is it just getting some bug
fixes??? I think that a branch in development would be prejudicial
