I understand this viewpoint.  I simply disagree with it.  My 
appreciation for Cocoon was greatly enhanced by my understanding of 
Turbine for instance.  And vice versa.  Then again, I'm very strange.

I understand this viewpoint as well, I simply disgree with it.  The 
number of people who would come to a Cocoon-specific event in my area 
would be rather low.  The number of people who would come to an event 
that included Struts but would enjoy learning about Cocoon would make it 
worthwhile.  The number of people in my area who made it to the 
Apachecon could be counted on one hand and one of the fingers includes 
the organizer ;-).

Yes.  All the more reason for combined events ;-)
