+1 on that. We are in the middle of trying to deliver with 1.1.8 as
operative JVM AND using cocoon for rendering. Please do not force us (LM) to
branch on 1.7.x and continue developing there as you move on to 2. It would
be very destructive.

Since we're trying to develop tools (applet editing and document tools) to
contribute back (the prototypes have been presented to clients) this would
be counter productive in two senses.
