How does it define layout?

One more thing that comes to mind... Cocoon portal-coplets seem like a
perfect way to define what /content/ is to be in a page.

It seems to me that it starts lacking when I need to insert pieces of
functionality, as they may have to touch the whole page and filter it.

IOW a portal is an excellent - user configurable - <xinclude> mechanism,
but views are not only about that.

I mean, views are basically a page-templating system. Can a portal be
defined as a page-templating system?

Still many questions and no good answer...
