Slightly outdated, in terms of the Cocoon 2 implementation, but up-to-date 
in terms of Cocoon 1.

No and no.

Yes, AxKit, which provides XSP/XSLT etc. for Perl.

I dunno about large scale, complex naviagation, etc. but see livesites on 
the cocoon website for some examples.

Note that Cocoon 2 will be far more suited to complex navigation, large 
scale, and "themed" sites. It really will be a quantum leap in terms of 
development efficiency, in my opinion (once developers have realised and 
understood its power of course)!
