What I really need to patch is web.xml and main sitemap.xmap (which is 
generated for block testing).
Probably some entries in WEB-INF/cocoon/xconf are not configurable other 
way than patching.

I know patching should be the last resort. Still I prefer to use cocoon 
2.2 as is and patch it here and there than to not use 2.2 at all and 
wait for all the issues to be resolved. After fixing some things lately 
I was able to finish a prototype system that quickly went into 
production. After I've experienced some annoyances with current build I 
was able to feedback even more.

Superb. Looking forward to it.
