There is no such "move afoot".  I'm the one that suggested minimal
tags and I withdrew my suggestion since I mistakenly thought that
DocBook could be made as simple as LinuxDoc.  I was wrong and said so
in a previous post.  If one wants minimal tags, then they should use
LinuxDoc.  That's what I currently use and spend less than 1% of my
HOWTO writing efforts dealing with tags.   Perhaps I should spend more
time on this (in LinuxDoc) by adding keywords, etc.
