Yes, it is safe.  See the samples for the forms block, check out the 
docs and ask lots of questions here :-).  Cocoon has the "scratchpad" 
for things that are "alpha" quality, but all core functionality and 
blocks other than scratchpad should be production-ready.  "Under 
development" in this case just means that there are some things that 
people want to see done on it.

One tip: you'll see a 'v2' and 'v3' subdirectory in the samples block, 
and you may run across discussions of these on the Wiki or the list 
archives.  These are experimental flowscript APIs for for the forms 
system, and you should probably avoid them.  It's been decided for 
future releases that we are going to incorporate some functionality 
that was developed in those areas into the standard Form API.  So, you 
should stick with the standard API if you want to stay on the future 
compatibility track.

I switched to v2 a year or so ago, because I like it better than the 
current version of the standard API, but I am going to have to switch 
back eventually.  That's not the recommended course for a newbie :-)

Have fun,
