In connection with updating draft-levkowetz-xml2rfc-v3-implementation-notes
over the couple of weeks, I've also added documentation to xml2rfc, generated

   - the actual XML schema distributed with the tool
   - the differences between the current schema and the RFC7991 schema
   - the code's settings for which elements and attributes are deprecated
   - text snippets describing the schema parts and how the code handles them.

It will have new --doc/--docfile and --man/--manpage switches; the first will
generate documentation in the form of a v3 XML document that can then itself
be processed to generate the various supported formats. The second, --man, will
generate the documentation XML internally and then process it to text output
which is shown with a pager, like 'man'.

I hope this will help overcome the painful lack of documentation.  It is part
of the 2.47.0 release I've just uploaded.

Best regards,
