AFAIU, Existing blocks would run unchanged in the ECM<->OSGi bridge bundle.

I think Daniel is talking "real blocks" here, and I think that would require 
the blocks to have OSGi code in them, at least for the Bundle Activator and 
ServiceFactory. Of course there is an option to make a Cocoon specific 
abstraction level on top of the basic OSGi mechanisms, but to me it seems to 
only hamper the progress, resulting in endless debates of what to expose and 

Put the stick in the ground. Declare "OSGi bundles is the plugin mechanism for 
Cocoon." Then move from there. :o)
