The reason that DBI is not documented is that PostgreSQL doesn't ship a
DBD/DBI interface.  The Pg module is documented as a man page and perldoc.
The reason that it's not in DocBook yet is not unrelated to the fact that
no one has ever volunteered to prepare such documentation.  I've been
experimenting with a Perldoc -> DocBook tool, so maybe 7.2 will have
something there.
