If I understand correctly, any XML file that is not supported by Forrest 
will be ignored, probably not the best behaviour, an error message would 
be more appropriate.

Forrest supports more than just Document** format though, for a list of 
XML doctypes supported see the action called "sourcetype" in 
forrest.xmap (XHTML is also supported). If you want to work with a file 
in a different format you must provide an XSL stylesheet for converting 
from your format to Document20 and configure Forrest to use it.
