Cocoon is used in big swiss banks more of less the way you describe (you
can't even imagine how much *real money* cocoon handles each day!
talking about open source quality and stability! Unfortunately, no bank
will ever admit it's using Cocoon in such a mission critical system :)

I think that 

 XML server application framework

is best description I can think of... but it's so close to a buzzword
that hurts.

I like the tagline 'XML glue for your serving needs' much better :)
