Yes, I remember something like this.

I can't speak for quickbook developers, but it could be useful to have a
backend in boostbook or docbook, even if it is not anymore used as an
intermediate stage. This involve some development cost, but à priori not too
much. It could be useful if someone want to use a custom xslt for his doc
(in case of use outside boost, since they try to make a common L&F for
boost) or for the sake of having a standardized xml backend.
After it depend on the scope of use they want to give to quickbook.
