Why not collapse the entire pipeline into a single component as well, that 
would eliminate a massive amount of bugs and testing time of the Sitemap ;o)

Componentization with semantically well-defined contracts in between, is a far 
better than large monoliths with innumerous permutations of configuration, 
rules/exceptions, outcomes, side-effects and associated subtleties. Do one 
thing, and do it damn well. That is what we like about Cocoon... Adult Lego!

Virtualization of a pack of transformers, with optional Generator and 
Serializer seems like doing the job more elegantly. At least as much as I 
have understood reading this all.
