Personally, I think of Phoenix as a app-server - much like Tomcat but 
for generic apps, not just webapps.
Its strength  is that it provides an out-of-the-box app container.
I don't know Merlin- so I can't make any comment on its pros and cons - 
but as you say Merlin and Phoenix
have such different aims and target application scenario, then maybe 
it's best to keep them separate.
Often, trying to bring together too many orthogonal requirements only 
results in something that is not as
effective as two separate apps.

Cheers, Mauro
