No, of course not, it's the other way around. Having the code in the 
Cocoon SVN implies that:

1 - our committers will not generally be able to commit there
2 - we are not able to VOTE changes to it, as it's Cocoon's PMC role
3 - most important: it's a barrier to entry, as the Cocoon build is
    much slower and more complicated than our's

We use it, it's a main part of Forrest, but it's in Cocoon.
I wanted to work on it, but having it there, even if I have access and 
am part of the Cocoon PMC, made it impossible for me given my time
