 I have the same situation with DB Prism Generator for Cocoon 2.
 I think that a parallelel content agregation could be produce a better 
response time of DB Prism architecture because all request return 
dynamic data (not cached).
 Dividing the generation in two phased ( Setup and Generated methods) 
for example:
  - If in the first phase Cocoon calls to Setup method of all the 
request in the agregation parts, this will be permit to DB Prism 
generator parallelizar all these request.
  - In the second phase Cocoon could be call to Generate method 
 Is it mechanism possible?
 Best regards, Marcelo.
