I am not entirely sure what you mean by "CMS written on top of framework" and how feasible such an approach is in the long run. Though we are open to suggestions.

We made Zotonic to make projects for customers. While building it we had an eye on a couple of CMS systems, notably anyMeta, Drupal and WordPress.  anyMeta had a great influence, as we are rather actively involved in its development (in fact we made it).

We used Erlang to solve major problems we encountered in the PHP systems most people are using.

Zotonic's current direction is to add real time sharing of information, using XMPP PubSub and other protocols. Of course besides adding more functionalities needed for a CMS.

Some other people are also checking to see if it can be made distributed, and if it is possible to use a key value store. 

We like to have a good out of the box experience, so that designers are also happy to work with Zotonic.

Kind Regards,

Marc Worrell
