With repsect to the above thread which says "Putting subsitemap 
component definitions in the root sitemap breaks the separation of 
concerns between sitemaps" this issue is now addressed with plugins. 
That is the concerns should be separated into a plugin. This will mean 
that we *will* have duplication of definiitons across plugins, but 
because plugin sitemaps clearly separate out chunks of functionlaity 
this will not be a problem to developers and will address the issues 
highlighted in the above thread.

For what is left behind in core I would be +1 for common components in 
the root sitemap.
