I've been working on a gaming site a few years ago and if we had Cocoon that
time our job would be much easier, cause we had to format our games to fit
different browsers resolutions, including WebTV (544px width), WebGate
(576px), etc. 

Although your idea is very interesting, I don't think that writing a Chess
engine will be of any fun and it will be too complex for a demonstration

IMO, the application should be business oriented, e.g. Banking, Billing,
CRM, Reporting or so. We can questionnairre users to see what is the most
needed use-case.
