Utopia would be a full roundtrip from the heart-to-the-edge and back again.

Reality is that nobody really focuses on that vision with any passion. 

I have been using Docbook for a good few years and I have found that the best 
solution is to work direct in the Docbook XML source and transform from there 
to all other formats required. There is no easy back trip. Managing the edits 
to all those presentation formats and bringing them back to the source is 
lots of programming and lots of manual labour.
