I held back my comments till now because there was some negative energy 
going round, especially because of the way it was "proposed", but IMO 
factoring XMLForm out of Cocoon as a library to process XForms makes 
perfect techniological sense, both for Cocoon (as you nicely put it) and 
for XMLForm, as it would be usable like the Struts Validator is for example.

I think though that this can grow into an Apache (sub)project. What 
would you suggest in this case?
