Pier has pointed it out, but it doesn't look obvious, it is a history issue.
SiteMap is not driven by extensions.

<process uri="/docs/*.html" source="/some/other/place/*.xml">

makes it looks like a extension matching. But it is not.
If one chooses to use the W3C recommendation (or whatever it is), one could
just use...

<process uri="/docs/*" source="/some/other/place/*.xml">

Cocoon is thereby providing a lot more power to the Webmaster to be able to
maintain the URIs over time, no matter what happens to the content location,
format or generation methods.
