actually this was the intention. Since it was me who implemented the Daisy 
export plugin for Maven, I decided for non-speaking URLs.

Yes, the Daisy explort plugin doesn't support this feature, but it shouldn't be 
too difficult to implement this. However, don't hold your breath that it will be 
me who will add this feature because it is rather low on my Cocoon priority list 
(long after a final release of 2.2, _wirting_docs, RESTful forms/controller, etc.).
