I certainly agree that conceptually Cocoon is much more than a simple
servlet -- it is a large and complex system.  However in actuality it
runs as a web application, so I think it is only appropriate that it
acts in compliance with the necessary specifications.

I can understand with a large project like Cocoon, many things will have
to be done that a normal web application wouldn't do -- the main issue I
am trying to raise here is that I feel it is unnecessary for Cocoon to
ever override the ContextClassLoader -- and I appreciate any and all
feedback on this.
