I would "refer the honourable member to my previous answer" (to Ravi
Ramamirtham) but it doesn't seem to have got through yet.

I don't know how you feel about XSLT. I imagine it is more heavyweight
than xlink, but it is in a reasonably advanced state of implementation
and adoption. You could do what you want by processing errorhead.xml
with the following server-side XSLT, or as the XSLT rec becomes adopted
by MS (and possibly Mozilla), doing it client-side:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

  <!-- stick an xpath expression matching "ERRORS" here -->
  <xsl:template match="//ERRORS">
    <!-- specify your replacement file here -->
    <xsl:copy-of select="document('errors.xml')" />
  <!-- just copy everything else -->
  <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
