Will turn out well, I guess!
I have a cocoon 3 application running with happy users.
The core is not so like to undergo dramatic changes. What is evolving a 
bit is 'goodies' and 'integration'.
What I like very much is that unnecessary dependencies have been 
removed. Also the separation between jars is better. For instance, if 
you do not need StringTemplate you can skip it;
same with cocoon-wicket.

Cocoon application using solely xsp's. We took the decision to rewrite all functionality to
flowscript / jxtemplate and we never regretted this decision.  And 2 years back I decided
to switch to Cocoon 2.2 and yet again no regrets.  Sure, you have to do quite a bit of additional
work but postponing an upgrade will fire back at you in the long run.  Not saying you have
to be an early adapter but once those early birds have used it for 1 year in production environments
and most bugs are removed... you should definitely consider it.
