Well, I'd have a whole host of suggestions for a UI - such as:
 - An editor with a tree view of the document docked into it, so
   that you can select a subelement and only see the text of that
   subelement (filtering out trivial tags like <para> but exposing
   document sections like section or chapter, etc.
 - Ability to define a subset of the dtd available for code 
   completion (docbook is huge and contains tons of tags only
   useful if you're writing a particular type of document)
 - Integration with Apache FOP or the Docbook XSLT stuff so
   that you can "compile" an html or pdf build of the book
   (Jesse already did this - see the build tasks he wrote if
   you still have a checkout of the ftp copy of the book 
 - A UI for defining that subset
 - Some kind of floating palette allowing you to quickly 
   wrap a section of text in some kind of tags

And, well, I can think of lots more things, but this is probably
already more than you wanted to hear!

There is an elementary DocBook support module in contrib.
