We (cocoon-dev) should already know some of these
answers, at least at a basic level.

We now have where we run
our own Cocoon. We should have some "benchmark"
applications there, with a well-configured cache.
That should enable us to have actual values.

Of course it does depend on the actual application.

Another resource that we could develop would be
a set of documents which describe some different
application scenarios. Then ask the Cocoon community
to indicate the resources that they think these
applications would require. Document the average.

I wonder if some company should engage a few Cocoon
developers to initiate this framework, doing it as
part of the Apache Cocoon project.
