Hm... since Cocoon is Servlet, Session management should
not be too hard to go for. But I have just a very limit
view of what is possible with Cocoon. Maybe someone with
a little more insight (than me) could comment on this topic.

Worst case I could maybe write a Servlet that does the
Session managment and uses Cocoon just for the display.
But that would need this Servlet somehow function like
a proxy... servlet chaining... don't know

If I see how to do the session management I will ;-)

Hm.. how stable is cocoon2 right now... what's up with session
managment at cocoon2?!

Well, of course... anyway I find it hard get into the process
of designing a site which uses Cocoon. More documentation cannot
be bad ;-)
