Let me see if I understand how I see the model:

Each pipeline component would be a "function" in the system that Cocoon 
allows us to implement.

So, it specifies how to get a (serialized) output, given some URI.

Mounting pipelines recursively, I think it is possible, would give us a 
nice functional programming language for a request-response (let's call 
it functional) machine,

Our whole sitemap would be a program that specifies the functional 
transformations between requests (specifying URIs) and responses.

Do I understand, or am I completely and hopelessly lost?

(I'm trying to grok it)
