If you add this to your xmlform/sitemap.xmap then your sample will be more
user friendly ;) :

                <map:match pattern="">
                    <map:redirect-to uri="cocoon:/wizard.html"/>
                </map:match>

I am very interested to see where did you get with it.

I am +1 for it.
