Eh, how does that follow? Docbook sources are horribly ugly -- they're
_so_ verbose that it's often quite a chore to even find the underlying
text for all the layers of (verbose) tagging. I've never written a
document in docbook, but for the same reason it looks like pure drudgery
to write if you're not using rather heavy editor magic.
I would never consider docbook an acceptable source form as long as
people expect to able to reasonably edit the sources as raw text.
