The current Cocoon charter is recursive. Basically we say that the 
Cocoon project will manage the Cocoon code. In short, we can do 
anything, even client-side software for voice recognition or inertial 
missile guidance systems.

The ASF board wants us to come up with a real scope and stick with it.

The problem is: how do we define Cocoon now that XML publishing became 
too limited?

the real core of what we do is about 'XML pipelines and their use in 
content production, management and serving'. But it might sound too broad.

suggestions anyone?
