Do we want to force people to edit cocoon.xconf to call their own business
components from the flow?  I thought Stefano proposed checking for
SitemapModelComponent and disallowing it?  Would that prevent looking up
a transformer, but allow looking up a legitimate component defined in

I'm still wanting to enable people (me!) to reuse action _code_ (not the
