Sure, the list of personalized tags is growing very fast. A README is needed 
before I also forgot how to use some of them ;-)

Yes, that is the proper way.

In the original DocBook-XSL that math is used only for secX titles, all other 
titles (book, part, chapter, appendix, index) are hardcoded to 24.8832pt. 
IMHO, it's a bug :-/

It's very easy to do, only need to change the value of 
{xsl:param name="body.font.master"}10{/xsl:param}

in lfs-pdf.xsl. 

Changing it to "9" is enought to obtain the dessired effect, and now the title 
for sect "7.4. Device and Module Handling on an LFS System" is also in one 

But if you want that change, many of the current {beginpage/} tags must be 
removed and readded to the new proper places.

Say me what of the two options you like.
