My thoughts exactly.  The information needs to stored somewhere, no?

Why not add a cocoon.xconf editing tool.  This way the user/developer would 
not need an XML editor to configure Cocoon.  There's almost a sitemap 
editing tool.
Most applications have a configuration interface to set it up.  I guess 
Cocoon has become so big that it is very much in need of this.  I'd write 
it myself, but I don't have any free time for the coming months, sorry.
