Both opinions are valid IMO: we need "fixed" URLs so we can point to 
them, but the current structure is also not very good/rather outdated.

My proposal is: keep the current docs, aka legacydocs in Daisy, as much 
"backward compatible" as possible. This will be all the Cocoon 2.1.X 
documentation we have.
Once we start releasing Cocoon 2.2 the 2.1 docs will be "frozen", i.e. 
the current state of is "archived" (available but not 
in the loop for automatic updates like 2.0) and all documentation effort 
will be geared towards 2.2. If this means all links are numerical, so be 
it, as long as the same number keeps pointing to the same page over time.
