Ok, this means that {map:1} is handled correctly by the sitemap, since 
it is passed to XML generator.

See attached a patch for cocoon-sample that modifies the current sample 
for StringTemplateGenerator by passing an additional parameter from URL 
match: once applied the patch and launched "mvn jetty:run" under 
cocoon-sample, you will be able to access URLs like as


getting an XML document that shows, among usual things, "anUrlParameter" 
or whatever value you pass after generator/.

I am giving this example because StringTemplateGenerator is the first 
generator coming into my mind that supports parameter passing.

I suspect there should be something wrong with your generator, then; 
take a look at StringTemplateGenerator's sources [1] for reference.
