I agree, that action should not be allowed. However 
browser dependant serialization would be the first
thing I would like to put into a virtual sitemap 
component, because its always the same and clutters
the sitemap. But it requires a selector.

How do virtual sitemap components mix with views?
Are labels allowed inside a VSC? I use labels 
a lot for debugging.
