We could debate this endlessly, but the point is that we will never have
conformity so long as we have multiple sites and projects.  Instead of
debating whether translation is or is not easy/possible, why don't we try
it?  If the GP people will post their DTDs, people familiar with TEI can try
to write XSLT stylesheets, and the rest of us can prototype apps.

Books will be marked up in a variety of formats.  Users will need them in
other formats based on their use cases.  Right now, efforts like GP are less
like a library than a warehouse of books.  A library needs researchers,
librarians, guides, etc.  I envision libraries offering translation and
search services that may require transformation.  There is no substitute for
empirical evidence.
