+ 1
I've already started rewriting i18n transformer docs using it.

But I still think that we need something more document oriented instead of
the book DTD for the documentation part (like I've suggested:
area/book/section/**/section/page). I have also a few suggestion about URI
space and pagination. Expect more help and comments in a week or so.

I don't have a full vision of how projects are to be integrated with Forrest
(or vice versa), so I don't have an idea of how Cocoon docs can be generated
by Forrest using its DTD repository and entity catalogs.
