We have been discussing that topic over the last couple of days
(re: the XML v. SGML debate), based on what came out of the
Oreilly open source doc summit. Nothing has been decided as of
yet. The LDP is still going thru linuxdoc-to-DocBook-3.1 growing

I think whatever happens, we still must maintain a degree of
flexibility in what we accept: linuxdoc, docbook 3.x,
docbook 4.x, docbook XML, etc.

imo, of course.
