Is mapping URLspace to filespace really cocoon's job? That's traditionally
the job of a web server as well. Since we're carving out URLspace in the
cocoon sitemap, doesn't it make sense to at least offer the option to have
access to the various URLs limited in the sitemap? Read over the current
sitemap working draft and see if you're still in disagreement.
