Well, having dynamically generated sitemaps doesn't seem that good to me.

About Gianugo's problem: we had a discussion where it appears the 
sitemap is the by-product of some higher-level XML description, hence 
why he wanted to use "cocoon:".

Now using a pipeline as the sitemap source can have a tremendous cost if 
that pipeline isn't cacheable, and in Gianugo's case I suggested him to 
generate the sitemap on disk when the higher-level description changes, 
which doesn't happen so often.

Cocoon is sometimes too much powerful and people use too much "cocoon:" 
dynamic URLs when other systems would require to dump something on disk, 
and this can lead to overly complex and and very unefficient architectures.

So, although we may accept a new "context" attribute (I'm currently -0.9 
for this), I'm -1 for accepting dynamically generated sitemaps.

Jochen, can you elaborate on your use case?
