I saw the class attribute being used in quite a few places. But i
haven't yet figured how to implement  it and <indexitem> in a wysiwyg
interface. How will they be specified, written, edited, etc.

Indexitem can be implemented with a button (say Add to Index) which
will index some word/phrase which is selected/highlighted.

Class has a lot of variations for different tags so I need to think of
a 'user-friendly' way to implement it. Perhaps when the user clicks
the button for filename, I could give the user some kind of a drop
down menu which enumerates the type (devicefile, directory, etc, as
listed at http://docbook.org/tdg/en/html/filename.html). I'll try to
figure out these details soon and get these two in.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll try and implement all the important bits
suggested here. :)
