Maven generates some page using the xdoc format and files we put in
the /src/site folder of each project. Then it also generate much more
pages using plugins.
There is a lot of stuff we generate using maven and that you can't
generate otherwise, so we'll still need maven to update the website.

I don't care about syntax, but I care about consistency and easyness
of the release process, so I expect you to show us some proposal in a
sandbox so we can have a look at it and its workflow.
And if you want to move to something different from the current xdocs
you should prepare to "translate" all of our projects (otherwise we
end up with 2 different ways to do things and in the long term this
gives nothing good).
