Parent article: A survey of the DocBook landscape
I use docbook2man to create man pages. You can read the entire problem including my patch and attempts to reach the author or Debian maintainer at
my bug report regarding this issue.
The first of your items sounds interesting, but from a practical point of view (i.e. for applications I envisage) having all languages in one file does not look optimal. The second paragraph is exactly the one describing my problem. If there are better tools (not ideas) for transforming a docbook file to a man page I will certainly have a look. The third paragraph describes an issue I have not thought about. First, of course, as I speak english but secondly because I treat docbook like a programming language - you'll have to know the tags/keywords to get your work done. It's very interesting, though, that there are solutions for this, even. Hopefully it'll work even if documents are interchanged.
