Ok, a) will break existing implementations (as noted) which might be
ok, but is not really a change users want to see, I guess.
I'm not sure, but if you go for b) wouldn't that mean that you
have to declare *all* components on each sitemap?
Situation: two CMs, A being the parent of B.
A: Component One - using Component Two
   Component Two - using the Source Resolver (this falls into category b
B: Component Three - using Component One

As Component Two uses the Source Resolver, it has to be defined
in CM B as well, so we get:

B: Component Three - using Component One
   Component Two - using the Source Resolver (this falls into category b
Now, Component Three looks up Component One (from CM A) and this looks up
Component Two, also from CM A - and the source resolving doesn't work
as expected anymore.
