Errmm...I thought Alex's question was about the LFS-Book source format?
You know...what the book is written in - was DocBook, now Latex I think,
and might be LFSML in the future. What you wrote was all about using XML
to build LFS, not to write the book's content in, or have I got completely
the wrong end of the stick (not for the first time!)? Admittedly I
realise that an XML authored book might make it easier to get the
build-commands out of in an automated fashion, but I don't think this was
the gist of the OP's question.
