Indeed, this would be the case. We are not able to pass more than the
attribute name to the module (from sitemap, that is). Thus it would be
hardwired to a sitemap parameter :-| IOW different instances would be
necessary if different sitemap parameter names are needed.

Of course we could aim at passing more than one parameter to it using
a HTTP GET like syntax.
