Ok, there seems to be a general consensus for this approach, which after 
more thinking I find finally better than "underground" uncontrolled spam.

Next question is if we consider that listing commercial resources on our 
website is a good thing or not. We already have a training section [1], 
in the "external resources" section (yes, Anyware is there), but we may 
want to move it to a new "commercial resources" section containing other 
kinds of resources (consulting, products, etc). IMO, this is as 
important as listing live sites, as it shows newcomers that Cocoon is a 
well established and widely used product for which they can find many 
kinds of commercial support.

Struts has such a list of external resources, but although it used to be 
on the Apache website, the link now points to an SF project [2] (powered 
by Forrest BTW)
