It's funny how I was thinking about this lately...

Forrest overdesigned? Yup.
Got a lot done? You are being too generous :-)

If I want to have a site with a consistent look, I would simply have all
content in HTML, a css file, some images, and it's done.

Cocoon is not dead, it's just that the reasons why it was created in the
first place are no longer so relevant.
