OK. I've been playing around with stuff tonight and my plan of attack 
looks more or less like this:

1) update DTDs with backwards-compatible changes in HEAD this week

2) postpone backwards-incompatible changes until we have some 
grammar-evolution plan:

    - I would like to keep grammars stable until after the 1.0 release
    - for post-1.0, I'd like to see heavy refactoring of the pipelines & 
skinning system so that we have xdocs, sdocbook and xhtml2 as input 
grammars, and xhtml1 or 2 as the intermediate grammar

I plan to support the backwards-compatible changes in the skins, too.

How does this sound?
