| Will there be a master source in one schema language with others derived
| from it (and if so which language will this be), or do you plan to maintain
| parallel sources?

My goal is to keep the master sources in RELAX NG and generate W3C XML
Schema and SGML/XML DTDs automatically.

| I have java tools that try to 'understand' DocBook grammar so they can
| 'subclass' it - currently I use some scrappy perl scripts which convert
| flattened DTD->java, but if DTD will no longer be the authoritative source
| format I'll switch to whatever is.

I think we'll have "official" support for the DTD for a good while
yet. I expect to generate a DTD that is "the same" as the one's we're
building today by hand.

| all?

Mostly LCD. But I think that could change over time as we become more
familiar with the territory.
