This is already possible...

Take a look at <map:mount/>, one of possible use cases is to have one
sub sitemap for every user. It could look like:

<map:match pattern="~*/**">
  <map:mount uri-prefix="~{1}" src="/home/{1}/cocoon_pub/"

Then every user who have ~/cocoon_pub directory and sitemap.xmap file
under it could have own Cocoon powered site. Every user will inherit
components declared in the parent sitemap, and will have no access to
other user's components/configuration.
