You are not forced to use all the different markup facilities.  Somewhere in 
the DocBook documentation they state (or used to state) that at many points 
it's up to the writer how detailed he/she wants to markup his/her texts.

In addition, there is Simplified DocBook (see http://docbook.org/).

By the way, DocBook XML is defined by Relax NG schemas nowadays, not DTDs.  
Well, there are DTDs available.
