Subject Cocoon is a "bleeding-edge"?! ( WAS Re: [poll] Java 5 as minimum requirement for Cocoon 2.2)

Surely Cocoon is an incredibly stable, mainstream application by now -
in the same ball-park as Struts et al.
After all, its been around about 7 years!
"Ruby on rails"... now *that* might be "bleeding-edge"!

This comes from my user perspective, since I don't normally depend on
large entities to host my applications, but can rather set up my own
servers and install the software I need. In fact, I think that
with a more conservative migration strategy would not typically use
cocoon to develop their applications - but maybe I'm wrong.

I use cocoon because I like bleeding-edge technologies when I see
benefits in them. Interestingly, I haven't made the switch to Java 5
programming tasks yet .. in fact, if cocoon requires J5 in the future,
this might be a reason to finally upgrade my java versions :)
