block.xml contains or point to the block.xconf, so it can be place 
anywhere. But if we should have a default place, wouldn't META-INF be 
the most natural place?

Also, even if it isn't implemented yet, the idea is to make the choice 
of component container configurable, something like:

   <components class="org.apache.cocoon.core.container.CoreServiceManager">
     // Container specific configuration

So a default name isn't possible.
