Would you care to explain which concepts you introduced in your cocoon setup
to achieve this?
Wouldn't it be possible to use jetspeed or turbine instead of building and
maintaining your own code?

I have a similar project - I'm stealing a few things from Jetspeed, and
building on Cocoon. I have really spent a lot of time with Jetspeed, and
while the concepts are great and thre is some cool stuff there, I think
Coccon is a better framework for a portal.
