So far there is only the StringTemplateGenerator component, that 
dynamically generates XML based on a template.

There are also no 'build-in' objects like request, session, etc. which 
were supported by the JXGenerator or the VelocityGenerator in Cocoon 2.x

I have no strong opinion on what should be migrated to C3 as long as it 
goes into a new module or the cocoon-optional module ;-)
I suggest that you choose that technology that fits your requirements 
and your time constraints (VelocityGenerator should be rather straight 
forward, migrating JX* is definitly more-timeconsuming) best.
