True. The problem is, that there is only one field in a WMC for storing 
the extent. This is the current extent of the mapframe.

A possible solution would be storing the initial extent in an extension.

like this

<layer ...>

The WMC can only stores layers without hierachy. It is therefore 
impossible to map the Mapbender layer hierachy into the WMC. Possible 
solution again: extensions.

However I'm not sure about using lots of extensions, as it is somehow 
contrary to the idea of using a standard.

Have a nice weekend,
