Mostly yes. It boils down to this:
To get decent PDF and PS files you need to process from latex source (or tex
but I prefer latex myself). All currently existing tools that automatically
convert Docbook XML to latex don't produce high enough of a quality. They
produce something half-decent for sure, but not the quality I accept to put
into a real book and charge people x amount of dollars for.
So we were looking into converting docbok to latex our own way with our own
stylesheets that convert to a latex format that I aprove off. Instead of
using a docbook stylesheet we'd use our own stylesheet to get the job done.
The exact implementations are still up in the air and we'll be settling on
something soon now.
