I think what is needed is a way to do the following without flow.

    deserialize -> validate -> store -> generate -> serialize

    The thread started with the notion that input would become XML,
    not JavaScript structures.

I'm not sure what regular actions were. A bad thing I suppose.
    Perhaps because they were catch all constucts?
    I think there is a common idiom that can be expressed as XML.
    The sitemap becomes far too difficult to read if the
    relationships between pipelines are absent from the sitemap.
