Yes.  Here are two examples:

1) Themed Site
The Action will determine what theme to apply to the site (I did this using
session to maintain the theme once the user selected it).  Currently, I have
that Action as the root of every single <map:match> in the sitemap.  It would
be more usefull to have this:

<map:act type="theme-selector">

2) Authenticated Site
It would be useful (especially for child sitemaps) to have an authentication
action happen before any protected resource can be selected.  In many corporate
webapps, the entire site must be protected.
