Oh I think it gives you a lot. At least from marketing POV. I see all 
the time users are building a WHOLE cocoon just to use core and a single 
block. Long startup times may discourage them in terms of agile 
development before they realize the problem lies in their approach and 
not cocoon itself.

I'm not following block development very precisely (mostly because of 
it's complexity that I do not full understand). I have one question 
though: could whole cocoon blocks be also lazily loaded - just as 
eclipse plugins are (or maybe we have this feature OOTB when using OSGi)?
