I don't like this kind of configuration, as it will introduce sitemap 
language dialects that may cause more harm than good...

Yep. And although we won't be able to redirect the "normal way" using 
<map:redirect-to>, we're still able to do it the "hard way" inside an 
action. But we shouldn't provide this action as part of the Cocoon 
distro ;-)

Some things I understood in the discussion is that we shouldn't let the 
loaded gun on the table, but if people want to open the cupboard to take 
the gun then it's their problem and their responsibility.
