Right. And the problem now is that there is no simple way for people to 
move from "designer-friendly" environments to Cocoon-based publishing 
in small steps. They have to do a big jump, where many probably fall on 
their face ;-)

Agreed. OTOH your view is very html-centric IIUC. In situations where 
multi-channel output (web, mobile, print for example) is required, a 
two-step view brings many benefits. But you're right that in such case 
the first step is rarely pure XML, it's often biased towards the most 
common/preferred output format.
