I can't seem to find this in  the archives, but I expect it is to do 
with adding the skin extension system to linkmap.xmap and tabs.xmap. I 
did wonder about doing it the way I did, in fact last night I had the 
need to extend forrest.xmap as well and felt this was going a step too 
far and was the top of the slippery slope to adding all the xmap files 
as properties in cocoon.xconf.

In the end I realised that since the local sitemap.xmap extension is 
processed before all other matchers I could just put everything in the 
project sitemap.xmap file.

Would people be more comfortable with me doing this with the 
linkmap.xmap and tabs.xmap extensions as well? I'll make the changes if 
this is the general consensus.
