For me the main advantage is that the source is plain XML so it's diffable.

Another advantage is that the source can be transformed into a large variety
of formats (PDF, HTML, Word, Eclipse Help, etc.)

Most publishers accept DOCBOOK markup as input.  So if anyone every wanted
to publish the developer's guide, it would be simple. (I know this is not
really going to happen, but I think it says something that places like
O'Reilly accept DOCBOOK)
