I now have a working routine for this on Windows 10, though it's not

 1. Edit file in emacs org-mode
 2. Export to TeXInfo (texi) format
 3. Open Ubuntu/Bash window:
    a. cp ../../../mnt/c/Users/pdavis/org/filename.texi ./
    b. makeinfo --docbook filename.texi
    c. cp ./filename.xml ../../../mnt/c/Users/pdavis/org
 4. Open filename.xml in emacs and replace header with db-xml-hdr.xml
 5. Open edited filename.xml in ArborText

Tedious, but it works. I can probably find ways to automate some of it,
such as a bash shell script to copy the file, run makeinfo, substitute
the header, and copy it back.
