I'm not suggesting to move anything 'out' of the core, but I'm reluctant 
to move new stuff into the core build which isn't absolutely necessary, 
especially now that we finally have a manageble and componentized build 
system wth blocks and all that. So I'm +1 on the FOM and related core 
flow stuff being added to the care, but would like to see some 
consideration before simply dropping the PetStore in the core. Ditto for 
JXForms to give some examples (but since XMLForm is already in its own 
block , I guess jxform isn't exactly a problem). 
JXTransformer/-Generator I don't know, except that it's quite some code.

A block is *not* a second-class citizen in Cocoon. It's a polite way of 
providing people with they stuff *they* choose to use, and nothing else. 
There's plenty of users out there who use the authentication-fw for 
example, still it's a block.
