What about cocoon-linkrewriter block? It's very small but yet very important block that should
migrated to Spring.

Looks good. I would add one more thing:
   - writing general migration guide from Avalon to Spring

You could just dump your experiences gained during GSoC and as result there should be one
tutorial discussing different aspects of Avalon -> Spring migration. This is a very desired
for existing Cocoon users.
