And what about the reverse: a wicket application getting (part of)
its content from cocoon? Because, let's face it, Wicket has a much
nicer separation of logic and presentation than cocoon, where html
is generated by (occasionally very unreadable) XSL files.

Having cocoon provide the content, and using Wicket to add forms
and turn it into a real website sounds to me like the ideal way
to work.

I've been thinking about the advantages of a cocoon-like framework
in Wicket, but I don't know enough about the fundamentals of either
to tell how good or bad an idea that would be, or how much work.

Very annoying, that. I consider this Wicket's main (only?) weakness.

I want the strengths of both Wicket and Cocoon, without the 
weaknesses of either.
