Right, if the user makes sure himself that the dependencies are resolved 
correctly because a 2.2 block will not include the JARs it depends on but they 
are copied into WEB-INF/lib at deploy time. M2 will make sure that only one 
version of one JAR type is deployed.

Currently these dependendencies are declared in the Maven project descriptor. 
Personally I don't have a problem with it as the alternative is having our own 
mechanism. Shipping M2 with Cocoon 2.2 will be much simpler.
