Subject RE: Sitemap and Links...

Hrm. The sitemap decides based on [request] directory what xml sources to
translate using what XSL:T. This is request based decision making. I agree
that there shouldn't be processing instructions within the xml document, but
should allowances be made for exceptions? In some scenarios, should the
choice of XSL:T be made not by directory, but on an alternative basis such
as based on DTD of the XML file. ChemML, MathML, xmi, SMDL and other unusual
XML-based standards DTDs. Or your own "FAQ.DTD" which is for all your FAQ
files.

What about iterative translation? If you have a sitemap specified so that
the source XML file is the end result of cocoon translation, is cocoon able
to handle it? What happens if someone goofs up and makes an endless
recursion?
