I'll answer your questions on the Cocoon list here:

All data are stored in files.

Are you referring to Oracle's data compression? What amounts of 
documents are you planning to manage, if you consider disk space an issue?

This statement can't be generalized. For many typical CMS usage 
scenarios, the Lucene index provides a very good performance. Since the 
Lenya repository model is document-based (as opposed to relational), an 
RDBMS would not necessarily lead to a better performance. It could make 
sense for metadata queries, but Lucene is also very powerful and 
flexible in this area.
