I did not explain myself very clearly.

Daisy has two stages of publishing, draft and published. Anyone 
nominated as a doc-author can edit documents, but there edits are put 
into a draft document. Only doc-editors can publish the documents.

There is also a third mechanism for version control in 1.3 (which we now 
use). That is branches. We could create branches for the released 
version of Cocoon and another for the development version.

Access to each of these types of document is controlled by the ACL 
within Daisy. Therefore the "documentation block" will retrieve only the 
the types of documents that people have access to see, for example:

users - published docs from a released version
user/editors - draft docs from a released version
devs  - published docs from the dev version
dev/editors - draft docs from the dev version


In this way people only see what either we want them to see, or they 
choose to see. This is akin to users only having access to the bundled 
docs in a release, but devs having access to the development docs in SVN.
