It surely looks based on Cocoon as far as some architectural concepts 
are concerned. It does not look based on the Cocoon source code though. 
Or, at least, they don't say it is ;-).

"How does OXF compare with Apache Cocoon?
  OXF's XML processors, XML pipelines and XPL were born recently from the
  need in the industry for solid and flexible XML processing
  technologies. On the other hand, Cocoon was initially designed as a Web
  publishing framework and has been around for a much longer time.

  As a result, some features provided by Cocoon are still unmatched in
  OXF, which however provides a more advanced technological foundation
  and can be used in a wider range of XML-based applications including
  Web publishing, interactive Web applications, command line
  applications, Web services, etc."

Yeah, nice marketing speak ;-).
