Yes, a stylesheet would fail as soon as you use pattern matching or
selectors or actions delivering values.

Hm, I think this is a use-case for the views concept of Cocoon, so
requesting http://localhost:8080/hello.html?cocoon-view=sitemap should
deliver your above example in XML. If you want to write a custom generator
you might end up with reimplementing all the sitemap logic.

I haven't looked into the new treeprocessor of Cocoon, but I feel that it
might be rather simple to extend it with this special view.

What do you think, Sylvain?
