This is not an answer IMO:

1. It's not practical: you can't run quickBook->DocBook->validator after
every change
2. The fact that DocBook is valid means nothing. It might be that converter
produce valid BoostBook from invalid source.
3. If source invalid DocBook generation may not be possible and we left to
dig in into hopefully readable error messages.
4. "should be easy to find" is very subjective and really depends on what
exactly is broken

Right. Let's just not make it a required standard for boost docs.
