You beauty!

You *are* a Forrest committer. All Cocoon committers are also
Forrest committers. Sure, it is good to discuss major additions
on forrest-dev beforehand.

There may be one issue. We started to add a docbook2xdoc
stylesheet a while ago. However it was only partial support,
which handled some elements and ignored others. The stylesheet
was not being further enhanced by the Forrest community so we
are discouraging its use and instead directing people via the 
documentation to configure their sitemap to enable full DocBook

This OpenOffice SXW sounds like a different situation. So it
should be okay, but if it does not gain a following then it may
need to be removed later.

So i am +0 (because i cannot help) for it to be added to CVS.
