 The XML Sitemap should be retrieved via `/sitemap.xml` instead of `wp-
 sitemap.xml`. I understand the original concern regarding the decision to
 prefix it (being potential plugin conflicts). However, plugin authors can
 simply disable the core sitemap which is typical behavior throughout

 Considering that bots, crawlers, and some SEO tools still request to
 `/sitemap.xml` by default, a core implementation should hold to common
 code standards similar to something like `/robots.txt`.
