Or change the version number in the sitemap namespace when changes are
backward incompatible. Stefano suggested doing so for the flow extension
(which is going into 2.1 IIRC).

Absolutely. I'd rather suggest the pipeline element does know of them
explicitely (know about those different pipeline implementations somehow)
rather than defining them in the sitemap. Should we be aware of a
infinite number of pipeline implementations? Those mentioned should be
enought, isn't it.
