LyX also has a docbook template, but how it works I don't know as I
haven't used it. More info =>

Only problem is that one use more time structuring the document than
actually thinking about the text itself.

That depends a lot. SGML requires quite a lot of work when it comes to
maintaining a dynamical document. Also if you need to document

equation capabilities (at least it was so last time I checked).
