I would like to see the mainstream linuxdoc adding these tags.
Taketoshi Sano has been maintaining it and I'm wondering if he's
willing to update it by adding the <trans> and <tdate> tags.  Or is
there a better way to do this?  One could put the translator just
after the author but special tags are better.  Most authors would
never need to learn about them.  Then they would need to be mapped to
the docbook tags (othercredits ...) so as to correctly convert to
DocBook.  I realize the <tdate> mapping is not yet defined.
