It means that - ideally - the document schema (and tools) now known as
"BoostBook" should become part of DocBook, freeing Boost developers to
focus their attention on library design rather than support tools. And
it means that - again, ideally - more people will be able to benefit
from all of that work, not just Boost developers.

Technically it means that Boost documentation will be able to depend on
DocBook 5, rather than remaining stuck with an old DocBook 4 version
against which the BoostBook DTD was developed.
