Eek - no!!

A case study: the current Forrest sitemap makes heavy use of cocoon:
pipelines to define 'source' and 'intermediate' formats:

 - Requesting index.xml gives you the doc-v11 format XML
 - Requesting body-index.xml gives you HTML for just the page body
 - Requesting index.html gives you the whole page

These are neatly segregated into separate pipelines.  Access to 'source'
and 'intermediate' pipelines can be disabled easily by switching
internal-only to "true".

However, when debugging its really useful to have access to
cocoon:-generated XML, so currently internal-only is switched off.

IMHO, visibility of cocoon: pipelines is something the user should be
able to decide.  There are perfectly good reasons for keeping them
visible, and its very simple to hide them if necessary.
