Both...

I think performance wise, I think Cocoon beats XDK.

This is by far your best option. Sadly, Android 5 has sooo little penetration yet... :(
Don't lose your work. Backup your game with Dropbox.

Use normal android in xdk or webview in cocoon
or ...
Android 5 browser is chrome and in android 5 chrome has a good performance like native
and webview use os browser (I tested android 5 and webview its really like native games)
webview in android 5 :
no additional size + native performance + fully html5 support + almost all android 5 devices have a good hardware

For Android 5+ C2 team recommend using Cordova export option and Minimum android setting set to 5+ (lolipop) [PhoneGap].

Use cordova create command, delete everything inside www folder and set C2 "Export files to:" setting inside that cordova www folder. That's it. Then use cordova run to run app on device.

P.S.: WebView is Android 5+ system browser component. You don't have to do anything to use it.
