Yes - these are what I would call "user stories" (or, at least,
likely user scenarios) - we could add a basic one:
"You are a php/asp/jsp developer (shame!) who doesn't know 
XML or XSL and wants to find out where/why this approach might
be used in your web apps"
(Further to this case, some on-line demos *with* step-by-step
explansations of what is happening and how Cocoon is 
handling things "behind the scenes" would be very cool - there
is something like this at cocooncentre)
And this is a common scenario:
"You know HTML and want to work with dynamic data eg. to
process a form that a user submits and change the information
or display of your web pages"

Good point!

If that is also made from the "background of user" aspect, so that;

"You know XML/XSL and want to publish static content - click here"

"You are a DB developer who wants to expose XML data - click here"

"You are Stefano Mazzocchi and want to - you are in the wrong area"

Base it on use cases and add "1 hour or less" exercises.
I assume that a pre-condition here is a "suitable" distro to start
