Yes, and I think it's a fair approach to take.

Here's how I see things going forward..

1) Towards Confluence as a direct MoinMoin alternative

Infrastructure@ want some decent benchmarks demonstrating that Confluence
can survive sustained heavy load (ala MoinMoin) and/or spikes (slashdot).
Noel rightly says caching is essential. Briefly experimenting with 'ab -c
100 -n 1000' suggests that Confluence's internal caching may be enough.
I'll ask the Confluence team if they can produce some benchmarks.

2) Confluence as doc staging/development environment

There are various ways to suck content from Confluence to a live site:

 - Maven has Doxia in development.
 - Codehaus have a Perl script (Confluenza) which sucks down content via
   XML-RPC to build their website.
 - Pier is working on a Confluence plugin that saves static HTML.
 - Anyone can rig up a script using Confluence's XML-RPC/SOAP API.

Confluence does not have to be running on ASF hardware for its use as a
doc staging environment. Some projects might use the Codehaus Confluence,
some use It would be
nice if the ASF had an internal Confluence installation for doc staging,
and that's what I proposed Atlassian would sponsor a box (partly) for.
