Exactly my thoughts... The only way in which I could see Daisy fit to  
handle that load, if it were to publish the pages entered as static  
files, then served off by Apache itself, without involving Cocoon  
(the same technique used by MovableType, for example).

Without that in place, I'd be -1 on hosting anything live of Cocoon  
on the ASF infrastructure, even with massive caching, because of the  
maintenance task we'd put on the infrastructure team, and the  
possible impact this would have on projects other than Cocoon itself  
(it's a shared infrastructure, we have to play it nice).
