As the number of resources is growing, it is good to organize them and 
creating subdirectories is ok. However, we must keep them under a single 
root resource dir to allow a simple <map:read> to serve any of these 

Too often I see sitemaps having a myriad of simple match/read for *.gif, 
*.jpeg, *.js, *.css, etc when a simple <match pattern="resources/**"> 
would do the job.

Also, now that these resources have stabilized, we may move them into 
the cform's jar, in order to avoid copy/pasting them in every project. 
The resources pipeline would then become:

<map:match pattern="form-rsrc/**">
  <map:read src="resource://org/apache/cocoon/forms/resources/{1}"/>
