Ah, I wasn't getting that subtle. I was simply saying that I can agree
with using the servlet API for _all_ environments. The CLI becomes
nothing more than a custom servlet container that uses a servlet to
generate its pages.

In fact, having said that, it becomes yet another tool that is actually
independent of Cocoon - it could be used to crawl pages generated by
_any_ servlet, not just the Cocoon one.
