This is from out of left field since I haven't yet worked with Hivemind, 
but perhaps
if there was a pure Java API for setting up the configuration, people 
could do it
in any way that they wanted (Jython, Groovy, whatever).

Maybe there could be some type of JavaBean hierarchy representing the 
services and extension points, etc.

The XML configuration method could remain as a sensible default.
