Yes, I was one of the people always doing that !!!
I always assumed you needed to add the mime-type to the <map:read/> so 
needed specific pipelines for each type.

Thanks for the tip !!!

Certainly makes sense to me, for a stabilised CForms.

More realistically, you would probably want :

<map:match pattern="**form-rsrc/**">
  <map:read src="resource://org/apache/cocoon/forms/resources/{2}"/>

To cater for CForms usage in sub-directories as well.
