  I have at least one large user relying on it. They do DocBook
processing and XInclude allows to split the document like external
parsed entities. But the XInclude chunks can be DTD validated 
directly contrary to entities. Seems a significant improvement for
them. They also validate the result of the XInclude processing
(since DocBook DTD doesn't have xi:include nodes).
