A bit of hacking could enable this.

If I add literal docbook-entries in QuickBook, like this:

<para role="auto-index-skip-begin" />

[heading Example]

<para role="auto-index-skip-end" />

The para entries are included in my final docbook XML, on the right
places, like this:
<para><para role="auto-index-skip-begin"/></para>

They are empty and have no visual effects. So they could be used for
skipping. Of course, it is not really beautiful but it would work. I
tried several other things (begin para, end para, or an invisible
section) but that does not work. Using some other entries (I tried
"markup" the same way) will work.

So with this, we could create non-indexable parts in quickbook, for
examples or otherwise.

Using QuickBook I could create a section with an id
"box_view_example_skip_autoindex" and that would work either, but that
show up in the page differently, because the section will have an entry
in the hierarchy. I don't know of there are other containers available.

I will react on your recent reaction later.

Regards, Barend
