That was the big blocker to getting documentation contributions the last time it came up here, and it's still unresolved except for those who are willing to dive in with a plain XML editor or to work with the foibles of the one extant free (unfortunately only as in beer) DocBook editor.

Not much good for patches to an existing document, but Asciidoc was

Indeed I think that may have been its original purpose.
