Yes, please do.  In general it looks like some return of the thick-like 
client is happening - since MS, Mozilla and Macromedia are all working 
on offerings.  Cocoon is well positioned to not only produce content for 
these three and others, but bridge them and provide fallback html-only 
views.  This is just "multi-channel" of a different sort and could be a 
strong suit for us.

This may also be an application of Cocoon which the US is ready to pay 
attention to.
