please keep in mind that the name 'Apache Cocoon' is protected, and that 
it will be up to the discretion of the Apache Cocoon PMC or the ASF 
board to let 'other projects' use it.

This doesn't say you are not allowed to port, it just says that you 
would not be able to use the name 'Apache Cocoon' without prior 
permission. Getting that permission could be tricky, or even more 
wicked, creating a subproject _inside_ Apache Cocoon to do a .Net port, 
could be a challenge, largely dependent on the community one could 
create around such an effort.
