hehe, I was already hoping for some reaction from you ;-)

The Cocoon servlet-service-framework allows to mount *any* servlet 

One of them is the Sitemap servlet which, as you might expect, exposes sitemaps. 
Basically it shouldn't be a problem to load the Wicket servlet this way either 
but the servlet-service-fw doesn't forward all the necessary environment 

I'm not sure what the real benefit of this integration is, but I want to give it 
a try and find out myself. One thing that I can think of is the usage of the 
servlet protocol to access Cocoon pipelines from within Wicket and vice versa. 
This should make it possible to use Wicket instead of cForms in Cocoon applications.
