Not really. So far, all configuration data nested inside a component
declaration is considered private ie the components business.

It depends on the action. Runtime parameters passed using the
map:parameter syntax are substituted. 

If you are using the Cocoon supplied database actions, they accept a
parameter called "connection" for the datasource.

<map:act type="db-add">
  <map:parameter name="connection" value="{global:connection}"/>
</map:act>
