What happens if we find out that a certain block is not supported any
more (technology outdated, we have a better block, any active
developers) *after* we marked it as supported. The first question I had
was "how long does supported mean"? The former proposed *certified*
relates to a certain point of time without saying something about the
future. 

Another point is that Cocoon is open source and nobody can be forced to
support a single line of code ...

Maybe we can find a word that relates to a point of time and does not
have all the meanings "certified" has (see Berin's mail
