Hmm... so a site administrator defining pipelines will _have_ to look in
both the sitemap.xmap and cocoon.xconf to see which sitemap components are
available - right? Isn't this more confusing than what we have at the
moment - where the administrator just needs to look at the sitemap.xmap?

By SoC you are saying that the person who defines the available sitemap
components is different from the person who then defines the actual
pipelines. I agree that this may often be the case - therefore the argument
is valid. However not giving the sitemap author at least a hint as to which
components he can use strikes me as being a step back from what we already
have.

Now if we had a super sitemap tool that read the cocoon.xconf and the
sitemap.xmap and then presented the author with the components he can
use.... :)

I am -1 for this. They don't belong there for SoC. As long as we are back
compatible none of the users should care. But people starting with cocoon
