Also, I have found it useful to make a distinction between a ResourceNotFound 
(or a future NoPipelineMatch) as a Warning, as an ordinary Debug message and 
as a detailed Debug message;

The Warning is pretty obvious.

The 'ordinary Debug' outputs the top N levels (typically ~5 does it) on the 
stack trace, + each of the messages of the nested exceptions.

The 'detailed Debug' is the full stack trace of all the nested ones, which you 
typically only need when tracing bugs within the core product (in this case 
Cocoon) itself.

My 2 cents worth of "bike-shedding"
