Would be templates better? 

They are "sub-structurer" to easier provide grouped contracts
(functionality) and hooks (design) on a plugin/project/theme base. 

I will call it x till we find a better name for tiles.

<jx:import uri=cocoon://prepare.tiles.solrbar/>
would become
<jx:import uri=cocoon://prepare.x.solrbar/>

I further suggest to get them out of the html contract dir.

tree resources/themes/common/html/
|-- solr-actionbar.ft
|-- solr-add.ft
|-- solr-search.ft
`-- solrbar.vt.xml

They do not belong in there. If you look in the core themes you can find
common-fo.vt.xml in the html dir of the common theme. This x does not
provide a group of html but fo contracts!

IMO they should be stored in resources/themes/common/x and stripped from
".vt" (does not makes sense anymore - vt stands for view tiles).

tree resources/themes/common/x
`-- solrbar.xml


Please we need some suggestions to replace x with better naming.
