Yes, I had arrived at the same conclusion:

  function foo(attr) {
    // call an input module that needs access to the request object
    var tmp = new java.util.HashMap();
    tmp.put('request', cocoon.request);
    return fooInputModule.getAttribute(attr, null, tmp);

Here's how I did it, for the archives.  By the way, I'm saving the input
module into a global flowscript variable, because it's supposed to be
request-independent.  The fake objectModel map, on the other hand, is
created each time in the foo() function.

  // in the global scope: get the input module I will call in foo()
  var inputModuleSelector = cocoon.getComponent(InputModule.ROLE + "Selector");
  try {
    var fooInputModule ="foo");
  } finally {
    inputModuleSelector = null;
