So, the sitemap and cocoon.xconf are build-up from an base file which
is processed by several stylesheets. Hmm, this is an interesting idea!
One the one hand, I like it, because no java class has to be written
for it, no addition libs are needed etc.
One the other hand, the configuration of the optinal components is 
done by a stylesheet. This might look a little bit wired.

But your stylesheet approach is a good idea! I'll think about it.
