You're right, in a commercial world. But Cocoon is OS and one of the 
strengh of OS is testing by its community. The users always find bugs 
that the programmer who has to write a test would never have expected.
What we should try to achieve is that every bug fix is supported by a 
JUnit or Anteater test so that it can't happen twice.
