Yes, indeed.

I mean, look at you: sitemap via webdav? via JCR170? what's next? SOAP? 
what about describing the sitemap in LDAP directly, you could use 
netinfo to edit it! hmmm, no, wait, what about sitemap via email? you 
post the sitemap attached to an email to a mailing list and then the 
last becomes the published one?


This sitemap dynamic loading is a workaround for the inability for 
cocoon to componentize the webapp space and the work on blocks (yes, 
it's happening, as you can see from Reinhard's and Daniel's commits!).

My -1 remains.
