Comparing Cocoon with J2EE or .NET is like comparing apples with oranges 
as J2EE/.NET is another level than Cocoon in my opinion. We should make 
the position of Cocoon (presentational layer) relative to J2EE/.NET 
(application/logic layer) clear for anyone.

Making a "Pet Shop" sample explicitly independent of the application 
layer (via SOAP, etc), showing how to support J2EE/.NET/something 
homebrewed should

- give Cocoon more visibility, thus more feedback,
- provide anyone with a decent sample how to harvest the powers Cocoon 
in a real life environment ;) and
- keep us out of any architectural war that is not our own.

The questions left are whether this is sufficiently needed and if there 
is enough volunteer capacity available to "scratch the itch".
