MAML and SHFB side-by-side?

I have some additional content I need to add to my project. Apparently MS is going towards MAML and SandCastle supports it (don't know how yet). SHFB will support MAML on the next release. So, I'm wondering if it's possible to build my transforms to output MAML and somehow feed the MAML to SC outside of SHFB while still allowing the SHFB process to control the rest of the build.  That way I am moving toward a long term conceptual content schema, and I still would have the usability of SHFB.

If this were an option, I'd need to figure out how to manipulate the placement, and TOC outside of SHFB.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how (or whether) to pursue the MAML / SHFB coexistence option?

I replied via the CodePlex Contact User option.  Check your e-mail.

I would be interested in knowing MAML support will be added to SHFB?
Would you be able to post your reply here for anyone else interested in how to combine MAML with SHFB?

Looking forward to the June release!!

Support for MAML and conceptual content is fully integrated into the next release with an editor and preview option.  It's due out this week.
