There is nothing preventing you from doing this today as part of your 
local processes. You can take document A, merge the XIncludes to 
produce document B, and then validate, canonicalize, encrypt, and/or 
digitally sign document A and/or document B. Each process will have 
the clear and unambiguous result defined by the specs.

Just don't tell me that document A and document B are the same thing, 
or expect that I will be satisfied with working only with document B 
and never want to touch document A.
