As Mike pointed out already, I don't think it's a big deal to convert
to XML. One benefit would be to get away from the awful DSSSL crap.
With XSLT we at least have a chance of modifying it if we need to :)

However, I was concerned about the new doc/ directory that Scott
had in mind, I'm not sure we need it for this conversion.
