I've read the paper, and there are some things I don't understand:

[In Cocoon]" All data transformed by the pipeline emanates from one 
place and has to be processed by the same set of transformations."

This is not correct; Cocoon has aggregation, and conditions inside 
pipelines, and pipeline chanining...

You start right on saying Cocoon is not correct and maybe need to 
maintain a new community project... I'd say it would be polite to ask 
Cocooners first. We (Cocooners) are very open to new ideas and proposals.
