Whoa, hold on. I thought that the whole of HEAD was an
experimentation area. I remember the Cocoon documentation
saying that, though i cannot find it now.

There is more required that just a scratchpad dir for new
Java code ... new samples, new and updated xdocs, config
experimentation (e.g. validation during build docs).

Perhaps the purpose of each branch should be clearly
defined and documented in contrib.xml
