Aren't these objectives part of Cocoon 22 also ?  I though part of the
rationale for blocks was that
they are--beyond a small core-- optional and modular, you don't have to
have any you don't need.

So building a 'lightweight' cocoon App would be part of Cocoon 22
already. Or are the core
dependencies of 2.2 already too heavy a footprint ?
