Comment (by Clorith):


 So the actual address of the sitemap isn't a problem, you will notice that
 the robots.txt file references the location of the sitemap (this is done
 in cases where the sitemap is not using just `sitemap.xml` as the name),
 and the robots file is checked before any other action by the search
 engines when indexing a site).

 As such, I'm not sure this is something that really needs to change, and
 it does ensure backwards compatibility this way, for sites that may not
 have an up to date plugin that generates sitemaps for example.
