Yes, I have to agree with Vadim here :( Many people use one of the
Cocoon protocols to access sitemaps, e.g. storing sitemaps in a
repository etc.
Unfortunately, there were some problems with registering our own
resource loader into the spring context (and as this is more than a year
ago, I can't remember...) - Today I think, it is possible, but its a lot
of work as we have to create several wrapper classes etc.

I worked over the past weeks on an extension to the excalibur
sourceresolve stuff (I named it jnet for now) which makes all
SourceFactories available through the java.net.URL class. But
unfortunately this requires that we use valid URLs for our custom
protocols as well which I think is not always the case.
