Does anyone have any additional input on this point?  From what I've
gathered, pandoc is what you want if your converting between any number of
markup languages.  It can convert to DocBook, RST, Markdown, and many
others.  Unfortunately, it does not take DocBook as an input format.

Based on the links provided by Christoph, there are some tools for
converting DocBook to RST, but they appear to be in their infancy.  I have
not experimented with them yet.

As a broader question, is Markdown the preferred format?  Or is the format
open to general discussion?  I do not have a preference at this time nor do
I know enough of the pros/cons of each to say anything about which is the
better tool for the job, but it might be worth hearing from people who have
more experience with them.
