I think already the name WritableSource shows the need for further 
thinking towards more basic, integrated approaches to handle both 
'Sources' and 'Destinations' in a protocol/transport-independent manner 
appropriately in Cocoon. As Cocoon is about presenting and transforming 
content rather than storing, currently there is no counterpart to the 
basic Source interface; lets design a peer counterpart to Source and 
make it equally integrated into Cocoon as Source is now.

Slide, another Apache project, has the concept of stores for such an 
abstraction; I do not think that the Slide concept is the only way to 
go, but as a start, it may well be worth looking into it. As Slide 
1.0.16 is not based on Avalon (*sigh*), easily sharing components or 
similar in order to couple Cocoon and Slide will probably remain a dream 
for a while :-/
