This is an excellent idea.  I, too, wrote a FAQ in it, and found it
quite simple to convert to DVI, HTML, Postscript, info (the GNU
format) and text.  And with the texinfo mode in (X)Emacs (XEmacs was
the FAQ I used to maintain), it was simple to write.

I'm not ready to volunteer yet to write it, though...
