Thanks Konstantin, i expected some reason like that.
I would think that it is very important to have on-line live samples
to show Apache Cocoon power. Surely some benevolent soul
could provide reliable network access to running samples.
Then the "build site" ant target could tweak any samples links to
point from the main documentation at ASF site to the samples site.
Of course local "build docs" would still point to local samples.
