I would never use any sort of "office suite" for large-scale document production. That being said, I really appreciate LibreOffice. The spreadsheet component is quite good, and I use the presentation tool to make slide decks. I even occasionally use the word-processor for small or unimportant documents.
Most of all, I really want to thank the OO/LO developers for giving me a free tool with which to read MS Office attachments. In business, you can't realistically reject all MS attachments, and having free software that can open them is a lifesaver.

We have a pretty limited set of docbook elements we use, but even still having something to make authoring easier would be really useful.

I can't speak for the OP, but I don't use WYSIWYG tools for authoring documents. I'm old-school, so I use LaTeX directly and generate HTML with tex4ht. The technology is not as new and shiny as docbook, but the results are superb.
