asciidoc was designed to support DocBook semantics. So, by converting the
file to DocBook XML, you shouldn't loss any information from the
documentation. If you can somehow interface DocBook XML and Doxygen, this
should be doable.

You can use a passthrough block in asciidoc syntax to directly write in
DocBook XML if needed:

I take a long time to answer, but I'm sure you can get quick answers
directly in the asciidoc spaces.
