Ah, yes, the relicensing. That's indeed a very important reason to go 
not back to 2.1.4. (But somewhere in your senctences a 'not' is missing :) )

+1 That's of course much easier than doing the relicensing again.

Hmm, maybe not if we do the branch and revert the incompatible changes 
there as you wrote in the section above. But if we do this effort we can 
also release 2.1.5.

What about this? Branching 2.1 now, reverting incompatible changes, 
releasing 2.1.5, and continueing the development in the HEAD, releasing 
2.2 after Cocoon Forms are refactored (that's the sugar for the upgrade 
:) ).
