How about this as a distinction:

You switch from being a user to a developer when you consciously invoke a Java 
compiler.

XSP to my mind is still in the user space. You are using functionality provided to you 
by cocoon, even if that is programming functionality. But if you write your own 
generator, then you're moving into the developer space, because, depending upon 
exactly what you choose to do with your generator, you might start to need to know 
more about Cocoon internals, Avalon, etc.
