I think I agree with John's sentiment, if not his exact phrasing.
I'm trying to either
a) create my own XML publishing system with Cocoon, FOP, Tomcat, XIndice, etc and market it myself under my own product name - not mentioning Apache
b) try to get enough people in the UK to support Cocoon, FOP, Tomcat, XIndice, so that we can put this software into big businesses and they wont get nervous about lack of support.
I don't know about an industry analysts study of XSL:FO but we ought to be able to come up with case studies for people who have successfully used FOP.
