I didn't say there weren't valid use cases I said "I've not found a use
case strong enough for" *me* to put the time into it.

It's your itch, you'll have to scratch it. That is the Open Source way.

There is plenty of discussion about this in the archives, you and I have 
discussed it to death before - the situation is still the same and the 
design is still the same, it is unaffected by the move to XHTML2, unless 
docbook provides a set of stylesheets to XHTML2?
