Yes, on the last Cebit I was impressed how many CMS and E-Learning
solutions exists. They should rename this into "CMS and others".

I know, there was also group from the ETH member from our project.

Some stores caches the content, to minimize the interaction with the
back-end. For example, we use in our development the XMLDescriptorStore,
which not noticed, if another store modified the content of the
descriptors. So you must write an Store Proxy to support concurrency
actions, which also handles the transactions.
