This is excellent news. If Cocoon is seen to be _the_ Killer application 
that allows
your creative people to be creative, without the technology getting in 
the way, who
can possibly deny that it is awesome.

I certainly don't really object to an avatar, and even if you were to 
employ a
professional to do a performance, or just a voice-over, the avatar 
edition could
provide an accurate reference to synchronise with, at a later editing stage.
