If I get you right, what you are describing is something like an
adminitrative interface for the sitemap. Something like that is available in
Jakarta Struts - you have special administrative URLs where you can
add/delete an action, form bean, etc. I think that something like that is
possible with Cocoon too.

If you need a dynamic sitemap at runtime then you can use selector to
dynamically select processing paths, you can use more generic pipelines,
etc. Look at the <map:mount /> - using it you can achieve something like a
dynamic sitemap.
