With tools such as pandoc[1] this becomes easier.  Even as a one-shot approach
to going from docbook to markdown shouldn't be too difficult.  I've used this
in the past where I've been in a similar situation (in my case going from
groff -> mandoc -> markdown)

This is something I'm certainly happy to pick up and run with.
