So Cocoon can only use things that are already "popular in the 'web tech
population nowadays'"?  This concept sickens me.  Would Cocoon have ever
come this far if it always followed the orthodoxy?

I'm not saying that introducing the scheme syntax is the right solution, but
this "conservatism for marketing reasons" is very worrying, using words like
"exotic" as criticisms of relatively ancient established technologies. 
Please let the experiments continue and don't be afraid to develop or
introduce something new if it is what is required.

Let's be creative!
