The skinconf pipeline and the DTDs and Catalog
is one side of it.

The other side is to document and demonstrate the
available features in the fresh-site sample.

Aside: I wonder about using RELAX NG for skinconf.
I have done some initial investigation, but not yet
enough to say more.

It is an interesting pipeline in the way it
sets up default values. Worth following, as it
teaches a lot about the sitemap. I wouldn't dare
try to explain it here :-)

Or not run 'forrest site' on something that has this
extra skinconf. That triggers the validation steps.

That is another reason add examples to fresh-site.
