there is a huge difference between "transform it one to move on" and 
"transform it every time".

The XML syntax makes sense only when you want to process the sitemap 
iteself via pipeline (for example, to generate an SVG poster of it via XSLT)

And makes sense if you want to prevent people from adding scripting 
inside the pipelines (well, actions are kinda like scripting aren't they)

but other then that...
