When people can agree on some conventions on how to build various
formats of documentation. We have all these easy conventions for source
code; we pretty much know how to build a .hs file without needing custom
build rules for every package. For documentation however there is much
less consensus or common convention. What do I do with a .xml file? Is
it xhtml, or do I need to do something obscure with docbook?

This would be an excellent area for someone to take charge, look at the
current common uses and see if there is a way of making the common
simple stuff easy.
