As I said then, this is absolutely untrue.  OpenOffice.org, for example, 
works with DocBook XML but not SGML.  There are also a plethora of XML 
editing and publishing tools which can been used for Docbook XML which 
are not available for SGML.  A simple look at this page: 
http://wiki.docbook.org/topic/DocBookAuthoringTools
.... shows that there are more than twice as many authoring tools which 
support only XML as support SGML -- and that most of the tools which 
support SGML are out-of-maintenance.
