Trang conversion of XML to rnc -- choices not preserved


I'm interested to take a rnc file which includes others,, say "docWithIncludes.rnc" and flatten it so to speak so that all included content is merged and thus there is only rnc file docWithoutIncludesn.rnc. 

The docWithIncludes.rnc has a list of choices such as

 include "extensions.rnc" {
        metaref.attribute = attribute metaref {
            "AAA" |
            "BBB" |
            "CCC" |

the first step taken was to take docWithIncludes.rnc and convert it to xml with jing as follows

jing -s -c docWithIncludes.rnc > docWithoutIncludes.xml

This creates a large XML with 79K lines and preserves the choices for example

                <value type="token" datatypeLibrary="" ns="">AAA</value>
                <value type="token" datatypeLibrary="" ns="">BBB</value>
                <value type="token" datatypeLibrary="" ns="">CCC</value>

However when I try to move this xml back into a now flattened rnc file all the choices are removed

trang docWithoutIncludesxml docWithoutIncludesn.rnc

So can a rnc file be generated from an xml file preserves choices with trang?
