Has it been sorted out how OSGi platform will be positioned in relation to the 
Cocoon Servlet?? I.e. Is Cocoon a plain servlet capable of running in the 
OSGi standard HttpService? Is OSGi runtime platform running embedded inside 
the CocoonServlet? Both? Other?

If OSGi is embedded in the Servlet, it seems 'difficult' to provide a bridge 
between the outer servlet container and the OSGi HttpService. Does the 
servlet spec even allow runtime access to configuration and management yet 
(have not looked at it since 2.1 or something)?
Personally, I don't care if Cocoon would be stand-alone, but I think a lot of 
people would call it regression and get upset ;o)
