I tried to make a connection between our need for a manual format and the 
general need for working with documents some TYPO3 users have. Maybe we can't 
have this connection, because a manual is too structured and the OASIS XML 
offers too less semantics.

Those who have experience with DocBook and OpenOffice and who are in favour of 
using it: Can you prepare a document demonstrating how working with DocBook 
in OpenOffice looks like in the reality? 

If that is as easy as writing manuals with OpenOffice like we do now, I don't 
see a reason *not* switching to DocBook. But that wouldn't be a short-term 
project and must be well planned ...
