Not as far as i know. IIUC Cocoon does everthing via
the serializers.

These are new serializers that Pier made recently for
his app and donated back to Cocoon. I don't know
whether they are finished or just enough to get his
job done.

I say yes. Implement them so that people can
just switch the name of their component and
directly use the same sitemap config.

It is best to always ask on the list. Others
may know. If not then we can Cc Pier. Try to
keep discussions in the community.
