Ok, I understand and concur.

Unfortunately Cocoon2.2 will be using 1.4, and we are now using this 
version because of the pass-through capability that is not trivial to 
backport to the 2.1 branch.

Because of this we will continue to support 1.3 till Cocoon 2.2 does not 
actually use 1.4 stuff, and then switch to 1.4.

I guess that our policy can then be written as:

  - though shall not require the latest JDK version
  - though shall not use a newer JDK if it's not really needed
