I think this is a great news, both for web developpers (1) and for 
Cocoon developpers (2).

(1) One big commercial product is available that shares the philosophy of
If your company wants you to devellop web things, you can say "Hey, Adobe
sells products that sound really great."

(2) The fact that a big company chooses such a model for web development 
will credibilize Cocoon. Chiefs will say "Wow, Adobe products sound great
but it costs a lot. Open source geeks have made a clone of them? Yes?
Well, let's give it a try!".

Of course, the ideal scenario is to chain (1) and (2) :-))
