Pandoc can presumably do the Markdown part, either from LaTeX or LyX's
XHTML export. I'd suggest you experiment with both and see what works
best. (I'll guess the latter.)

LyX 2.4.0 will have enhanced DocBook output, so that will become an
option. If you can compile from source, you could test it out now. (I
will probably build a development snapshot at some point, too.)
