I cant get the point. Cocoon is an XML publishing tool. The central idea 
is the XML based pipeline.

Why should Cocoon now be responsible for a hodgepodge of other 
publication tasks? how does TEX fit into the pipeline? not at all. only 
if (what I would *really* appreciate) someone would generate an TeX 
generator, that creates XML out of tex; this would seamless integrate 
also TeX ressources.

but TeX processing is obviously no Cocoon purpose.

The next one will ask, why Cocoon cannot create WML from powerpoint or 
SVG from Postscript.

So there are many publication traces thinkable: Cocoon is one of them.
