Subject: [boost] quickbook abuse without boostbook

My company is using docbook for end user documentation and to some
degree also for design documentation. Since docbook is nothing anyone
seems to be fond of writing, I now started looking into quickbook. The
features that attract me the most are the neat syntax and
programmability. The docbook environment that I am supposed to use is
based on a different docbook version, than the one referenced in
boostbook. So at the moment I have an xml file containing the book and
booinfo header containing our corporate design foobar and disclaimer
stuff. Then each chapter is referenced. The chapters are written in
quickbook as chapter documents. When running the toolchain, it
complains that it could not find the boostbook dtd - probably because
downloading of dtd is disable, or fails because of our proxy. Is there
a way to surpress the DOCTYPE tag within the chapter xml output files?
