that's right. Typo3 generates links in a format. CoolUri just translates 
them into another not knowing whether input makes any sense.

And is that the same for <uriparts> e.g. for language <parameter>L</parameter><value key="en">1<value> that I can input link with non-exist value for "L" parameter?

What's the point? The point is to find values in a database table (e.g. 
translate ID to title). You can't just throw away values when you don't 
find them in the database, because then you'd end with link to different

I think I saw in tutorial (or manual) that after I create CoolUriConf.xml and go to backend module then click "Delete everything and start again" (in the actual module it mispel "AGAING") after that if I go to "Cached Links" I suppose to see "translation matrix". But I didn't see anything there. What is actually I have to do?

It does what it says. It deletes everything in the both tables so it can 
start with clean sheet. It means you need to go to your website root so 
the links will be generated.
