It has the same default directory name than the split by node output. And 
similarly for the third split possibility (by section). I am not sure
that we should decide ourselves for a specific name, I think that in 
most cases the usere will only use one possibility of splitting, and
if it is not the case, he can use -o .

If .dbk is recognized as docbook, then it would make sense to use it,
but in my experience docbook docs are always ending in .xml.

It is not that problematic to have the xml output and the docbook 
output ending with the same extension, since in general the xml output
is here as a temporary output that is to be modified, say, by an xslt
