[Chameleon] correct way to use a WMC for app configuration

Hi Bart,

try taking a look at how the cwc2.php file does it (around line 709 -  
729).  I think you'll find that these are required and there is  
really no way to get around them.  Actually, thinking about it,  
loadContext loads the context into an existing map object, so perhaps  
the best/most portable way of doing this is to distribute a default  
map file that has these settings and initialize using that, then load  
the context.
