I fully agree. I also think that the benefit for refactoring this part 
would be that we can more easily fix the bugs we find and improve the 
user experience a lot!

For me about the same regarding the timing as I still have to practice 
being 'offline' for about a week ;)

A side project I started is a wrapper package for CR as a CQRS / 
Event-sourcing try-out. This package is for a small part funded by a 
project we work on, but is a good check to see how event-sourcing could 
help. I now work on this together with Thomas Maroschik. I don't know 
about companies interested in this topic, but if there's interest from 
the EAB (not directly on Neos budget I'd say) or companies that read 
this: we are of course open to more support :-)
