+1 - it's the challenge ahead of us for the year to come.

Other than that, I believe this thread is rapidly approaching the 
FUD-level we are now encountering in the flawed J2EE vs .Net benchmark 
by the Middleware Company.

Better docs & better design patterns will help us out. As far as 
community-based system design and architecture is concerned, I believe 
cocoon-dev is doing an ace job, for Cocoon-core at least. But maybe we 
should make the distinction between the core and the add-on apps a bit 
more clear, so that people don't think they have to use each and every 
nifty little feature we added to the codebase to solve our private 
itches. A number of competing and overlapping components and 
'subframeworks' are perhaps confusing the user community.
