I would suggest to start on an existing code base, e.g. Lenya or 
whatever, make
an appropriate Cocoon block out of it (there had been a list of 
requirements to meet)
and start from there. Else I guess discussions just keep going forever ;-)

The existing code base might not satisfy everybody, but at least it's 
concrete to start with, even if it will be totally modified resp. 
refactored in the end.
