DocBook Publishing Model

Inspired by some work that Dan Connolly showed me at a working group meeting once, I put together an RDF description of the XML Publishing Model for DocBook (in N3 notation).

The RDF model is fairly crude (suggestions welcome), but the real motivation for the model was to build something that I could feed through cwm, rdf2dot.xsl, and the graphviz toolset to produce flowcharts (in PNG and SVG) without actually doing any artwork by hand.

Here's a smaller diagram that illustrates only XML publishing with XSLT:
