I too hope to see both the new construction and retrofit cohousing models
flourish.  It occurs to me that some sort of coop / limited equity
coop / or some hybrid structure might provide some of the benefits of
rental in either model.  

Who lives in a house we've owned for 20 years. We hope to develop
retrofit cohousing and are looking for cohousing occupant for second house
across the street that we own (rental or sale).  WE've recently decided to
merge our Racial Dialogue (FOR related) with our potluck supper.
