The Securing and Optimizing guide is not, nor has it ever been SGML. It is
written in MS Word.

Great. But what does this have to do with SGML source for documents that
never had it? It would take entirely too much time and energy to develop
the SGML source for this guide.

I wish it was in DocBook as well, but it will be some time; if ever for
that guide.

Instead of asking why a piece of software is using "1970s technology," 
start asking why software is ignoring 30 years of accumulated wisdom.
