Well, I agree. But in this case, we need to make cocoon.xconf something
else. (Cocoon2 needs general configurations that are normally never
changed on a sitemap basis but they should not be compiled-in, core
things like logging and such).

Anyway, each sitemap should reside on the directory it describes (the
sitemap is metadata so should be local to the data it describes).

Of course, Cocoon will by default avoid serving the sitemap to clients
like regular XML files. You have to allow that explicitly (like you do
for Apache .htaccess files) .... but these are just implementation

Since we are targetting Cocoon2 for Servlet 2.2, I think we should just
use WAR and forget about anything else.

What do you think?
