Donald (I think) outlined the general problem recently on Cocoon Users.

1st Problem
XObject is in a package heirarchy that does not exist within Cocoon 2

2nd Problem
XObject's toSAX method uses a depreciated class DocumentHandler instead of
the newer ContentHandler (or have I got this the wrong way around?)

I would personally really appreciate being able to use the XObject (or
similar) interface for my tag libraries to make them compatible with both
C1 and C2, but I believe we will have to bite the bullet and depreciate the
current XObject in C1 before it can be implemented in C2.

Hope this helps
