I understand your reasoning.

"However:"... Pollo is an opensource XML editor app specifically tuned 
for Cocoon sitemap editing. It has a small community (users only) and a 
license compliant with ASL. We would like to expand the user's base, 
though. Does this mean we should try to find some justification for 
adding it to the Cocoon code base? IMO, no.

This might sound harsh, but it is not the intention. I think a lot of 
Cocoon-related projects would benefit from being grouped under one 
umbrella: WikiLand, CocoBlog, Pollo (maybe - though it isn't really 
Cocoon-based), XMLForm, SlashEdit, the authentication stuff, etc etc 

Basically everything which shouldn't reside in core. Scratchpad projects 
give the false impression their content will be migrated in a 
modularized way to the core sources, but in reality scratchpad is an 
incubator for classes which will be dispersed *across* the entire codebase.
