That is an interesting idea. Not *.ehtml because that
has been deprecated, but *.html)

So i gather that you are suggesting another stage in
the Cocoon pipeline. The Content Aware Pipelines that
are used in forrest.xmap could detect the doctype.

This is what we are hinting at when we say that there
is vast additional power in the Cocoon sitemap.

One issue is that we already use that detection to
enable our partial "docbook" support. It might be
possible to configure that to use the full DB XSL
if it is available, otherwise partial.

Another issue is that the user would need to have the
full DocBook XSL installed locally. That could just
be listed as one of our FAQs.

However, this is now getting into development issues
rather than user issues, so should be discussed on the
"dev" mailing list.
