Two or three years ago, I created huge EDDs for DocBook 4.12, 4.5, and 
5. Of the three DB 5 is a little incomplete because a few items were 
missing in the DTD file that the DocBook people assembled. Still, a 
helluva lot could be done with the almost-intact DB 5. [I read somewhere 
in the minutes of a meeting several months ago that the editor involved 
with DB 5 might complete that DTD...]

But with the advent of DB 5, the DTD version is nonnormative.
