It seems so strange that you hard code these things...

This should never be a problem. I don't understand the reluctance to use 
basic XSLT features, but by referencing the link/menu data through the 
document function (or whatever the right way is for cocoon - strange 
that it has to be different...) you totally eliminate this problem. If 
the link exists it is guaranteed to be correct. If a link 'links' to 
something that does not exist, either do not render the <a href/> (just 
the text) or wrap it in a span that has font-color:red or something.
