Hmm. I never got this fealing. At least I do not see .dokbook files in
libraries maintaining it's docs as quickbook.

What particular part is FUD?

I still believe that most (if not all) the point in original post are valid.
These facilities were never submitted, reviewed and accepted. Essentially
it's a someone toy within bounds of boost (might be quite useful, but the
fact remains). BUT, Unless you position it as boost documentation format, I
personally don't really care.
