This sounds exciting. Do we have access to any example/samplout output of 

One of the interesting possibilities is to generate examples automagically. 
For instance by correlating the Java source file for a Cocoon Generator with 
its usage in a processing pipeline.

w.r.t Forrest, it would be nice to have a way of generating more friendly 
documentation of the DTDs. The current DTD documentation is good, but I think 
it could get better. Right now its a very "mechanical" kind of documentation 
-- just listing the attributes and children and parents and so on. A little 
more annotated DTD documentation would be great (what does each element mean, 
what are recommended usages and so on).
