There is nothing that says what its purpose is in the JavaDocs, so its 
hard to say.  I based all my observations from the "Find Usages..." 
option in IDEA.  I do agree that the configurations should be moved 
outside of the sitemap though.  In all reality, it is very rare that you 
would change a component's configuration.  The only time I can think of 
is when you are defining an Action, but then again a properly defined 
one will respond to information passed in as the item is being used.
