Because there is no package "docbook-xsl xmlto".

Because non-option arguments are ignored when the command line is
processed as the corresponding handler is set to NULL and setup doesn't
check if there are any remaining arguments after option processing.
That could be changed, I guess.

As far as setup is concerned, the command lines are correct.  To do what
you want, you can either comma-separate the package names behind a
single package option

   setup-x86.exe -M -P docbook-xsl,xmlto

or give one package per package option

   setup-x86.exe -M -P docbook-xsl -P xmlto

or even mix the two styles

   setup-x86.exe -M -P docbook-xsl,xmlto -P docbook-utils
