I do not totally disagree, but I don't like the configuration part of it.
When you design your site/create the sitemap you don't want to think
about how the pipelines should be handled: if the output stream
should be directly written or "cached" and then written.
And the other think is, if the stream is directly written to the
output stream, the error handling is not working properly as
the result can consist of the first part of the real response followed
by the error information. This is really bad.
