When I saw Stefano's example I instantly thought he was demonstrating a 
resource that would be generated dynamically, and thus unrolling would do no 
good. (Just to show that two people can look at the same thing and get 
something completely different)

While many Cocoon users will be starting from static files on a filesystem, I 
would imagine that an equal number would be dealing with pure dynamic 
resources that would not benefit from the unrolling.

I do think that your idea is excellent for filesystem-based resources. 
Perhaps the ability to plug in different types of pipeline's would be the 

<map:pipeline type="filesystem-unrolling"/>
