I bet it's legal. They need to mention only ASF:

 3. The end-user documentation included with the redistribution, if any, 
    include  the following  acknowledgment:  "This product includes  
    developed  by the  Apache Software Foundation  
    Alternately, this  acknowledgment may  appear in the software 
itself,  if
    and wherever such third-party acknowledgments normally appear.

Moreover, to play on a safe side, they should not mention Cocoon:

 4. The names "Apache Cocoon" and  "Apache Software Foundation" must  
not  be
    used to  endorse or promote  products derived from  this software 
    prior written permission. For written permission, please contact
 5. Products  derived from this software may not  be called "Apache", 
nor may
    "Apache" appear  in their name,  without prior written permission  
of the
    Apache Software Foundation.

PS Bea done same to Xerces and Xerces - see weblogic.apache.* packages.
