We actually migrated from DojoToolkit to Mootools. We started off with 
dojo because it seemed ideal for our needs - here were a bunch of 
widgets that we could wrap up and use from the server side. However, we 
quickly discovered that they don't really put any stock in object 
models, so the widgets were generally one-shot deals. Once you'd made it 
and put it up on the screen, that was how it was going to be. Now, we 
had a dynamic server model that allowed us to change anything on the 
client we wanted anytime we wanted.. the two approaches didn't mesh.

After using Dojo for a while, we got more confident, learnt Mootools and 
realized we could make the widgets ourselves.

Also, I would definitely classify Dojo in the 'bloated' category :)
