while the sitemap namespace was introduced exactly for this, I think 
that we should try to remove possible duplication of effort (and code).

So, I would agree to name the Cocoon 2.1 sitemap namespace as

since it is different from the old one (and this definately helps 
sitemap editors!) but I would try to make an effort to have the same 
code interpret the two of them.

This also mean that Sitemap 1.1 *extends* Sitemap 1.0, that is:

  - all tags included in sitemap 1.0 keep the same meaning in 1.1
  - only new elements and attributes are added to the sitemap 1.1

Also, as I wrote previously, I think we are perfectly consistent with 
the *design ideas* that stay underneath the sitemap and we don't need to 
change anything that is currently included in 1.0 (we spent so much time 
figuring out those tag names!!!)
