I think it's a good idea. DocBook, TEI, LaTeX are all good existing
models (I think the constant focus on "real world = what's already on
the web" is counter-productive; we're still early in the web
revolution). Indeed, I author my academic articles and books in
DocBook, and then convert them to a home-grown XHTML micro-format. It
actually is pretty good on its own, but also imports nicely into Word
(which is what publishers typically want).

Note also that Alf Eaton did some work in this area.
