One interesting question is, what is the default mode we ship?
Development or production? I think we should ship development settings
as the default.

Now, for the modes, if we solve everything with properties, we can
provide one directory for each mode containing different property files
and then simply tell Cocoon to load all property files from a specific
directory. This is already implemented in 2.2 anyway.
The lazy loading is a property, too. And properties can be used inside
xconf and I think sitemaps as well to replace tokens.
