I would be happier hearing this argument after a poll of the user list 
to see how many people:

a) require a Java 1.4 version of Cocoon 2.2
b) require a Java 1.5 version of Cocoon 2.2

There's a potential user base we would lose if we don't move forward. 
Damned if we do, damned if we don't ;-) It's a question of picking which 
is least damaging to the project as a whole, considering all existing 
and potential users.
