Wow, that's really kinda brilliant, I hadn't even thought about hooking up
cocoon as a mail client.

This does bring up a question that should be addressed now before we get
too many dynamic document processor entities. Should each processor claim
a namespace and only operate on tags that exist in that namespace? It
would make it harder to step on each others' toes if we did so. How would
the page author choose the namespace that is associated with SQLProcessor
if they didn't want to use the default? Or is this something that will be
addressed by XSP?
