Bob Stayton and I have developed a set of XSL stylesheets to round- 
trip between DocBook and Word(ML).  There is no support for change  
tracking yet, but I'd be happy to discuss your requirements in more  
detail.  There is support for revision history, but it is not yet  

The round-tripping stylesheets are part of the DocBook XSL distribution.
