Can't agree more.

Yes, I'm discussing it with Infozone people right now and will
afterwards speek up at the PMC and member list about it.

My personal vision about a (nearly) complete XML infrastructure is as

Xerces:    The workhorse to bring XML into the game
Xalan:     The workhorse for transformation of XML instances
Ozone/XML: A store for XML content
Prowler:   To manage the XML content (access layer)
SchemoX:   A front-end framework to manupulate XML content
           This can be C2 components as well as a Swing GUI IIRC
JetSpeed:  A front-end framework/components for content aggregation 
Turbine:   Specifically the services accessable as general C2 
Cocoon2:   The base framework to bring all those pieces together

All the above together with Tomcat and Apache HTTPD will complete the
picture for me.

What are you oppinions?
