Thanks, your project sounds interesting to me.

I think it would be good to include such best practices app as blocks 
in Cocoon, so that people can look at them easily without having to 
integrate external stuff.

I's say keep it simple and focused on the few use-cases that showcase 
what Cocoon portals can do.

Most probably you'll need forms and Flow to implement your portal, but 
I think the main demo should not use too many different tools. Maybe 
you can structure it in different blocks though, which could 
demonstrate different parts of Cocoon.

Discussing it here will probably be more efficient, but as there hasn't 
been many answers to your proposal, you probably need to seed the 
project with some code first to get feedback. If you can send a patch 
it could be a start (assuming others are ok on having such a sample as 
a block in Cocoon).
