Wich make me think of the discussions that happened with the move to 
"newxml". At that time one pro for the "newxml" was that both printed 
book and nALFS profiles could be automagicaly generated from the book 
xml sources. I think its been done for the printed 6.0 book (maybe I'm 
wrong since I didn't follow those threads on -dev). What's the status of 
  generating nALFS profiles via xsl stylesheets ? Is this idea down ? 
Did somenone think of it recently ? I guess it should need changes to 
both book's xml sources and nALFS elements (DTD), maybe this should be 
thought of before releasing both nALFS and LFS next major releases (2.0? 
  / 7.0?), should'nt it ?
