I think its a **great** thought, and will definitely go a long way in
making Forrest a mature product. There are many many more use cases
that can be thought of, but the ones you list make a representative
list. But I'll add just another one:

Consider the computer science department of a University. The systems
people maintain their own webpage, the theory guys maintain their own
(do they??!), the vision people their own. The CS webadmins then
simply can use Forrest to plug-in these separate websites to create an
integrated website for the department.

I'm +1 on the 2) approach -- this should be core forrest
functionality. Further, I have a feeling that (like IMSManifest) any
plugin that does this would not be able to provide fine grained
control over site.xml and tabs.xml (atleast not easily).
