I agree that this is a problem.

I think this is overengineered. Why not simply use a placeholder in the
docbook files, an entity as in
Then, simply create a tiny file with one entity declaration at configure time
- and &kde.icondir; expands to the directory where the actual icons of the
application are stored. Include that file in kde-chunk.xsl, and then you
would have solved the "duplicate icons" problem as well, no?
