You're joking right?  Our plans are to use the portal for generating the 
site navigation for all our various products since it is perfect for 
that.  The fact that it allows JSR-168 portlets to easily integrate into 
that mix is a huge plus as we can get portlets from our partners or 
third party vendors and easily add them to websites.

easy I'm sure it would have been done that way in the first place :-)
