I just came back from the initial kick-off meeting of the Enterprise Expert 
Group in the OSGi Alliance. 
One of the interesting things are that Spring will get a central focus in OSGi 
Enterprise, and many of the Spring OSGi guys (Adrian Coyler for instance) is 
part of the EEG. I expect a strong convergence, so that not only will Spring 
become a first class citizen in OSGi, but also vice versa.

So, from a Cocoon perspective, I think it is a wise choice to continue the 
Springification and just keep an eye on the features that the Spring OSGi 
team are introducing features from the OSGi side of the fence, such as 
dynamicity and peer-classloaders. End of the day, I don't think Cocoon will 
need to do a lot for full OSGi support.
