When we started to work on Cocoon 3 we were not sure whether we should 
migrate actions at all since they are often used to introduce some side 
effects or to implement logic that should actually become a matcher or 
to work around some other limitations that should be solved differently.

Hence I guess

setConfiguration(Map<String, ? extends Object> configuration)

is missing because nobody has needed it yet.
