Even if runtime sitemap tree travesal will make easier to implement
this, I keep on being against such an approach even if I had the
temptation myself to use something equivalent.

The reason: it breaks separation of concerns because the sitemap
administrator and the programmers that generates the code that generates
the dynamic pipeline must be the same person or must overlap completely.

Also, I've never seen a case where the need for dynamically generated
pipelines could not be solved with more carefully designed static

However, if you have any example that proves me wrong, I'll be happy to
reconsider my position.
