This would be a *possibility* as a foundation for a new Sitemap syntax.
In the end, when we start compiling COcoon Blocks, we will have a highly
specialized sitemap that will allow us to perform all types of
optimizations that would otherwise be impossible with the current
general purpose sitemap.

Keep in mind, we have *several* components for Generators, Transformers,
Serializers, etc.  We really only have one implementation for the
sitemap.  I am advocating formalizing the contract of the Sitemap
(or Processor since that is what its interface is), so that we have
the possibility of comming up with a truly fast sitemap that is
specialized for our purposes.
