said, am I right in saying that resources can result in non XML output?  If this is the case
then feeding a resource into an aggregation (or anywhere else for that matter) would require
a redundant serialisation and deserialisation.  I'm not offering a solution here, just raising
an issue!

Thanks for raising that issue.  Basically, it would help if we new for certain
whether the resources are "serialized" versions of a resource, or simply a source
for XML inclusion.  Personally for Aggregation to work smoothly, that is what
we need.  A way to specify a non-serialized source to include into the document.
The source needs to be able to have undergone it's own processing (XSP, transformation
into an intermediate result, etc) and include those results.
