   Proposed New XSL Element -" xsl:insert" - Could it be considered

Hello standards makers....
Well after hacking around with
xsl:include and xsl:import ...as a method
to "simply" insert an external xsl file in the
stream ...it appears that a xsl method does
not exist to "simply" accomplish what I want
Most of the xsl style sheets I create are
quite complicated table structures....where you
may have 8 to 10 tables embedded with each
other to create a master page layout that is
reusable for all of a site's pages....I then have
just a repeatedly used header table structure,
menu structure, footer structure and then various
content structures all inserted in the master page
layout structure...
So my issue is to find a method to "simply" insert
the header, menu, footer and various structures in
the master table layout...not something I can do
"simply" with the current xsl...
Sure xsl:include and xsl:import will bring in the external
files but I am unable to "simply" insert those files inside
a table that is 5 or more tables deep in the master xsl.
It would be so convenient to just have an "xsl:insert" element
that would just allow me to "simply" insert an external xsl
file "here" at will...
Would there be a possibility to have the "xsl:insert" element
considered ?????
