I don't mean 'stop use', but it's dying because XML is growing. In DocBook
5.0, it will be only XML and no more about SGML as it will get more people
to move forward to XML.

Are you sure, you know more about XML? XML is a megalanguage. XML/XSL are
a lightweight of SGML/DSSSL. Therefore, XML is based on SGML but with the
familiar feel and look to HTML. I believe, you can find the more info
