Yep. But this is also because Flow is too new. The first steps in flow
implementation of are AFAIK by end last year. So it takes long time while
the Cocoon gurus figured out how it would work. I remember strong
discussion about this. And AFAIK Cocoon is the first implementator of this
idea related to XML pipelines.

I am currently using Flow and also I like the idea of use the sitemap with
never writing a line of flow. It is good because some people does not need
flow at all.
