Add a little visual basic for the structured parts (author info and other front matter, references), and there you are.  Why hasn’t anybody done that?

All this publication tooling is potentially interesting.

But if it means that some *other* format is the source from which the 
xml is derived, then IMO it is important that the data tracker be able 
to accept an manage it, so that we don't require multiple version tracking.
