It is unfortunate that generated documents are not structured, but it is
also rather easy to use FrameMaker's conversion table feature to apply a
structure to them, as these are usually not very complicated
hierarchies, if one does not have FrameScript.

Of course, this has to be redone after generating a new/updated version
of the files (TOC, LOF, etc.) or at least, before you need a completely
valid fully structured book, which itself is an ideal task for
automating with FrameScript... :-)
