[sorry for the late reply, I didn't have any email for 2 days]

I agree with Jason here. The site-tools seem to belong rather into the 
site-plugin than into doxia. I think the current close connection has 
some drawbacks, it provokes confusion about responsibilities (example: 
anchor creation for section titles, clearly a task for site-tools but 
currently done in the modules).

However, right now it's not completely true that one can use the core 
without the site-tools (see xhtml sink), but in principle it should be 
like that, and it's one of my goals to achieve that for beta-1.

So IMO we should unify the version number and release them together for 
now. Once they are functionally independent we can think about 
separating them.
