Please don't forget that all Cocoon developers started as Cocoon users. 
So why don't you jump in and write some better install docs ? The 
community would be very thankful for this.

If sending patches is too complex, you can contribute to the Cocoon 
wiki, as many users do.

used "inside" of your customer's webapp.  If I opened an M$ product out of the box and the
way to "INSTALL" it was described as in INSTALL.txt with the results far from "That's it!"
I would not hesitate to return it.

Yeah, but with M$ you pay for that shiny box, have no way to make your 
feedback heard nor to contribute back.
