Why do you want implementation details in the element:
  <map:flow name="java" type="atct" class="org.apache.cocoon...."/>  
  <map:flow name="fsm" type="fsm" src="descriptors/fsm.xml"/> 

I don't think that class or src should be attributes of <map:flow/>. It
should go into the configuration, shouldn't it?

to use the flow attribute to determine which implementation is used 
doesn't make really sense to me. Everywhere else the type attribute
is used. I would use the flow attribute to give the flow processor a
where he should look for the implementation (either to initialize a
new flow or to continue an existing one).
See B:V5 and C:C7

I think the changes from A to D make sense. For me the big 
arguement for generalizing the element names in the sitemap
is not the second implementation but to give people outside
of the Cocoon repository within their own projects the chance 
to integrate their controllers without having to write a 
wrapper within the existing JS interpreter.

So if we find a consensus on A to D we should do the changes.
