That _might_ be just the case. ;-)

I wouldn't downplay what we are doing with low-level XML handling stuff, 
and also this often results in bugs being reported to the parser gurus. 
I've been doing some light XSLT development today, and I ended up being 
slightly annoyed with the quality of error handling in Xalan (let alone 
the way the eventual messages are being thrown forward in Cocoon).

I'd like to see a more unified approach however to the (n)Include stuff, 
it might be better to extend the standards syntax with specific 
constructs available as features in Cocoon's own Include transformer, 
rather than having two Include transformers side-by-side.
