That would be an interesting experiment. Actually Andrew McIntyre did 
some work to get Derby to build with DITA 1.3 and a newer version of 
FOP, but I'm not sure it worked. We would probably need an expert like 
Andrew to do some tweaking of the Derby files to make the build work 
right. I think he made some progress -- see DERBY-2373 -- but I'm not 
sure it has been followed up on.

DITA is now at 1.4.
