Yes, that is how we are using cocoon with our web application. each "page" 
that the system generates is an XML document of our own home-grown 
schema/dtd. we did model our form controls after the current Xforms WD from 
the w3c.

we then use cocoon to transform that into whatever output we need, be it 
pdf, html, wap, etc.
