This is a restrictive option.  It's much better to use one of the
many XML/XSL based packages and generate from there.  In this way
you can extend the document definitions as needed which with TeX/LaTeX
is possible but not the preferable solution in my book.

That could of course be easily done using a static java.util.Map and a
unique id for each unique doc generated.
