 Thanks for your report! Very useful feedback as always.

 You're right that folks can (and should) use `wp_register_sitemap()` to
 register sitemaps, and that will not pass through the
 `wp_sitemaps_register_providers` filter.

 The filter doc block is a bit misleading: "Filters the list of registered
 sitemap providers."

 It  would be more accurate to say "Filters the list of built-in sitemap
 providers before they are registered.". Not to mention the doc block for
 the class method which could be improved...

 Anyway, I'd consider not being able to unregister/filter sitemaps added
 via `wp_register_sitemap` a **bug**, and we should fix it.
