I'd say SitemapComponent should have the method.

Done - easy patch.  Now I'm wondering about status...  Obviously at some
point all components will need to return status information, but in which
interface is it obtained from?  Shall I add String getStatus() to Component?
Or create a Status interface a la Cocoon 1.x?  I'm in favour of adding it to
Component but as I don't know all of the design decisions, I don't want to
do the changes, then rewrite them.
