Huh... actually you would be surprised on what you can do with just a 
hammer. :-)

Seriously, though, I think that there are no architecture limitations to 
achieve what you want. Many people are using Cocoon for Web Services, 
and there are already a lot of components ready for use. In fact, the 
only thing missing from the picture, AFAIU, is the JMS part: this is 
where you might want to write a set of components (transformers? 
actions?) to achieve what you want. With the upcoming flow engine you 
would probably have a cleaner solution, though.

I would direct anyway further queries to cocoon-users, since they 
actually belong there.
