Lets see if I understood.

We would have three compartments: cocoon-2.1, cocoon-2.2, and cocoon-blocks.

Development would proceed roughly like this:

Step 1:
  cocoon-2.1
    Contains its own blocks
  cocoon-2.2
    Retrieves blocks from cocoon-2.1
  cocoon-blocks
    Empty or non-existent

Step 2:
  cocoon-2.1
    Contains its own blocks
    Learns to retrieve additional blocks from cocoon-blocks
  cocoon-2.2
    Retrieves blocks from cocoon-2.1
    Learns to retrieve additional blocks from cocoon-blocks
  cocoon-blocks
    Contains blocks markedup with version compatibility information
    Some community review setup for contributed blocks

Step 3:
  cocoon-2.1
    Retrieves blocks from cocoon-blocks
  cocoon-2.2
    Retrieves blocks from from cocoon-blocks
  cocoon-blocks
    Contains blocks markedup with version compatibility information
    Some community review setup for contributed blocks
