Okay.  Here is why they work as the first entry.  This may be obvious, 
but chapter pages somehow 'absorb' the first <xi...> into the existing 
page, so the trick is to absorb any role=dummy into the previous page, 
wether it's a chapter page or not.  I have absolutely no idea how to do 
anything with docbook if it's outside the normal BLFS editing, so this 
is probably _way_ over my head right now.  That's not to say that I 
won't look into it a little.  I mean what better a chance to learn than 
to just dig in and get your hands dirty, right?  :-)
