If it does, it means you have to agree to two licenses in order to use 
Spring: ASL 2.0 and LGPL (Hibernate is LGPL, right?).

It would not be an issue as long as classes compiled against Hibernate 
are not included into Spring JAR which is (in this imaginary situation) 
used by Cocoon.

Anything else becomes grey area, and as such, most probably should be 
avoided all together.
