Hmm...sounds a bit like the arguments against XWindows when it was 
created: at that time most people couldn't afford the system and 
network resources used to run it. But the "processors and networks get 
faster all the time anyway" attitude made XWindows a very long-lasting 
and powerful system.

So, although dynamically generated sitemaps might be risky 
performance-wise today, I don't think we should block them.  People 
might find brilliant uses for them - we just have to warn our users 
about potential bottlenecks.
