Thanks very much, Aditya for your advice. I really appreciate it. 
I tried your suggestions.

The section titles and numbers are doubled now, most likely due to other 
mappings that. The subsection and subsubsection titles need to be mapped as 
such, a generic mapping for all section heads is not feasible (I think).

This does not work, because the sections contain all kinds of elements, not 
just <para>. 

I tried \xmlall{#1} with other elements, but the result is a mess. I need an 
lpath symbol that refers to all underlying elements. I tried {+}, {*}, {//},

I had thought about this, but it would ruin the docbook structure of the 
document, and my editor programme would no longer accept it. The programme 
already complains about the change of <table to <cals:table. The typesetting of 
tables as part of the document is still a problem ...
