I consider that the structure of the present ghc manual does not need
such a rich markup as DocBook which is, imho, not very user-friendly.

otoh, I'd prefer something simple (if you want to get contributions from
more users) like 'txt2tags' 

(see e.g. http://txt2tags.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html)

which enables one to do lot with very simple markup.

There are many targets supported, light sys-reqs, cli & gui, and even
syntax highlighting for (g)vim, emacs, kate...
