I could imagine that Cocoon will move away from this package and start
using their own approach. Nevertheless, a store package is imho a very
nice think that you can need in every project. The avalon-components
project has a similar approach from cornerstone.

One of the problems of the store package is imho that it just works. THere
is no real need to improve or document it (things that are working are
always bad for open source as no community builds around it).

The xmlutils package is a very nice one (I think) and it has imho the
