Uh.. Totally... I wanted to say that many of the components used in
Cocoon, can be reused also in another tool dealing with XML translation
triggered by EMail events...

I tend to agree with this. Look for example to the XML.APACHE.ORG
website. We have multiple DTDs (FAQ, changes, documents...) all those
are translated into one, (the document one) and then styled in HTML.
When I made the XMAS stylesheet (the one for Christmas) I just had to
change the last style, while all the others (from FAQ to DOC, and from
CHANGES to DOC) didn't change.

Of course, anyway, with stylebook and I don't have
performance problems :)
