I have recently posted as a comment my personal conclusion about this
thread :

XInclude can be very useful if it fixes the well known problem of the
handling of external parsed entities by tools such as XSLT processors
which rely on XML parsers silently expending external entities
references (but this feature would probably have an impact on other
recommendations such as XPath).

>From my reading of the WD, I have the feeling that this will not be the
case, greatly reducing the interest of XInclude IMHO.

Hoping to be wrong...
