this should be an enabling change rather than transforming change. 
mavenized projects will be able to added entities to their navigation.xml 
which will match menu elements from the main menu.

for example, once they've added the DTD at the top of the file, the entity

&about-menu;

will be processed (by the parser) into

<menu name="About Us">
     <item name="Home"       href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/index.
html" />
     <item name="Contributors"           
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/contributors.html"/>
     <item name="License"                
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/license.html"/>
</menu>

the main change is that the project.xml will be composed of entities and 
the actual menu elements will be pushed into xml fragments in a 
subdirectory.
