| any chance of seeing some examples / tutorial from you that discuss

I've mumbled a bit about my vision a few times:

| trying to understand how you see the vocabulary evolving in terms of
| modularity / extensibility (i.e. core / profiles etc.).
| I'v some ideas concerning how to use docbook to support the software
| development process (from requirement documents to UML modeling), but
| to flesh them out I need to understand better where docbook is going.

I'll see what I can scribble down.
