Hey, I like that argument!  For example, no other
Apache project is implementing the XSL standard, so
why should we?!?  Oh...on second thought, I see your
point. ;)

But if the developers of the other teams involved are
quite experienced and preside over successful
projects, I frequently defer to their judgment.

+0, if you wish to do it. -0 with a manpage.  But I
still think our future will be with Docbook
documentation.  Personally speaking, it has been
wonderful during my day job (which is a lovely 2000
miles away right now ;), our technical writer picked
it up very quickly and has been very efficient/quick
with it.  Even prefers it over Microsoft Word.
