I disagree.  Once a document comes out of the preptool, there's *exactly* one place to get all of those bits of information.  That's the whole point of the preptool, is to refactor a bunch of logic that would otherwise have to be in all of the output formatters.

I would be fine with that, but it will take quite a bit of effort.  Let's make sure it's really required before starting.
