I'll make an RFE of this to the DocBook TC... 

I've also needed it before but, as Poet said, I've used <ulink>... I
agree with you.

A ToC before the document title??? I think that you have some problems
with your stylesheets. Please look at other DocBook documents at LDP
to see how they were rendered... 

    > B: No break between front matter and first body section.

We have it. Are you using ldp.dsl as your stylesheet?

Hmmm... Are you using



<author><ulink url="http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/";>Eric
S. Raymond</ulink></author>?

I don't know if the second is valid, but I recommend using the
first. I haven't thought about using an URL as your contact
information. I'll post another message later (please, remind me) with
a suggestion to it.
