No, I don't think there is at the moment, but if you add any, it
should go in the boostbook documentation for now.

Yes (I assume you're asking me, I'm not really the best person to be
in charge of boostbook, my xsl isn't that great).

The html could be fixed with css, although it is wrong that the
synopsis header is at the same level as the main header. We really
should be using 'h1' for the main header, but I'm not sure how to do
that without messing up the docbook.

I don't know. I think Steven knows more about the docbook generated
for reference documentation than I do. I would prefer to use more
semantic markup where possible, but if it causes problems then maybe
we shouldn't. I'll have a closer look at it later.
