I tend to agree with Peter here. And if a move to Markdown is the target, then
why not migrate the Markdown result to the lp:git repository in the process ?

Keep the bzr branch XML formatted doc as the reference of where we are, and the
lp:git Markdown migrated doc as where we want to go. Keep bzr modifications to a
minimum so the delta remains small and by the time we have a complete Markdown
version of the document, we will have migrated to lp:git.

I suppose that using some XML -> Markdown translator could facilitate the effort.

I do admit that editing XML is a definitive barrier to contribute to me :-/

Kind regards,
