X-Pubs 2007 - DITA Specialization and S1000D

DITA is both a markup language and architecture for defining new markup languages, or creating DITA-compatible flavours of existing languages. Can DITA be specialized to support the S1000D standard, enabling standardized content reuse, integration, and publishing with S1000D-compatible content in a DITA-compliant toolset? If it can, then a strong reuse and integration relationship would become possible between the two standards, with sharable infrastructure, content, and publishing streams.
