IMO these are all changes that should go into beta-1. The coupling with 
maven/plexus has always been a major frustration, the sooner this is 
removed, the better. The logging API was only added in beta-1, so if you 
are going to dump it anyway, do it now. I don't know what your plans are 
with book and maven-plugin but I do hope they will survive somewhere, 
just not in the core?

In any case, I am concerned that the doxia development is getting more 
and more away from what is currently used be maven (ie the alpha 
branch), maybe we should think about releasing alpha-11 as 1.0 final and 
move on with doxia 1.1 or 2.0? Opinions?
