I think, just as an addendum, that these types of requirements are not
only why the Fedora Documentation Project will ultimately produce fine,
proffessional docs, but also why there is a need for other sites like
fedoranews.org for less formal documentation to live.

Having said that, and my previous posting, maybe it would be good to
discuss putting up a wiki for the FDP to use in creating docs, which
someone would then convert to DocBook for submission...  Just an idea,
I've no real stake in it either way.
