Good point... if only removing actions would be a solution. If I were a 
Cocoon hosting service, I would want complete control on all the 
components that users can use, but that has nothing to do with Actions 
per se IIUC, but about the implementations of Cocoon components and the 
possibility of using them.

Any suggestion on what you would want to have to create your costomized 
version of Cocoon given the above point?
