When I origionaly proposed it, I had a separate file that declared
the pipelines by name.  I was proposing a separation of concerns for
the sitemap.

I.e., break the Component declarations out and merge it into Cocoon.xconf
allowing for central management of allowable sitemap components.  Also,
explicitly declare the finite amount of pipelines in a pipelines.xconf
file to describe the named pipelines.  Lastly, the Sitemap and Flowmap
ideas were reduced to the actual matching of source to named pipeline.
