I think that if someone is going to change or improve its toolchain by
using ITS, he/she will use the latest version of DocBook. It doesn't
make sense to create new solutions based on legacy version of DocBook,
especially when DocBook V5 schema offers much easier ways to customize
it then previous versions.

Of course, if someone raise question about DocBook V4.x during WD stage,
we might consider adding additional section into BP document.

Yes, I was aware of this problem. There is already the following text
before rules file:

"Because DocBook use is widespread and
diverse the rules defined here are just example which may need further
tailoring for specific use."

If you think that this is not enough bold, I can try to come with more
explicit statement.
