Was defining a spring application context on a per sitemap base a design 
decision or the easiest way to write a prototype? Shouldn't it be the goal that 
each block (and of course Cocoon core) can provide beans via some export 
functionality and this exported beans can be reused by any other block depending 
on this block? Or for now, wouldn't we want to use Spring managed beans all over 
in our Cocoon application?

(Sorry for the maybe dumb questions - don't want to criticize your work in any 
way :-) )
