:) +1 I think it could be called "components.xconf" since it is all about.

I think it could not be a big change if we separate the current
sitemap.xmap in:

WEB-INF/components.xconf    -> <map:components> part of current sitemap.xmap
sitemap.xmap                -> just <map:pipelines>

To dont make the change to "traumatic" to the overall code, initially we
can specialize a class of the current sitemap processor that just will
merge this to files in in once and give the control back to the "current
sitemap processor".

What do you think?

Note: merging <map:components> and cocoon.xconf will be worse. Newbies
tend to keep away from cocooon.xconf because they simple does not
understand it (I said that based in my own experience).
