replied elsewhere. I do not like the idea of having 20 same web.xml 
files residing in each application block.

I mean that there has to be one of the committers that has will, skills 
and time to do it. As we all are busy with our things most of the 
current 2.2 problems outlined above won't make into next 2.2 release.

The user base for 2.2 is hardly existent. Now having maven you a lot of 
artifact jars and cocoon deployer. Users got used to patching. We cannot 
drop it because cocoon simply isn't ready for it.

We could have patch mechanism separated from main deployer:
mvn clean compile cocoon:deploy cocoon:patch cocoon:shield jetty:run
