I think that the idea is excellent, but I wouldn't make it a block.
Blocks will be pluggable components, ut what you envision may need the 
classes at startup.

I would propose that we mimic the blocks build system for a section that 
contains Cocoon "parts" that can be used on startup, but can be taken 
out of the core.

I sent a mail some time ago about this, to create "modules" alongside 
blocks, but then I married, didn't follow it, and didn't even see if it 
had arrived ;-)

In this way the core can be smaller still, and we can keep additional 
functionality that is not part of the blocks concept separate. This 
could also help in making Cocoon profiles for smaller devices or such.

We would still have to decide the name though, is "modules" ok? Dunno.
