That's it.

Not sure if I understand exactly what's happening here...If Cocoon has to 
fetch XML files through RMI and insert their content into XML streams, what 
you need is a Generator that gets the XML over RMI, parses it and makes it 
available as SAX events for the following pipeline components.

You could then use data provided by this Generator for anything, including 
inclusion by CInclude.

The usage scenario would then be
1. Client requests http://myserver/LogPipeline/xyz.xml
2. Generator gets the XML data of "xyz" over RMI (xyz is some form of 
identifier for the data, not necessarily a filename).
3. Generator parses the XML and generates SAX events.

If you want to insert your RMI-XML into other XML without parsing the RMI-XML 
(but I'm not sure if this is a good idea), I think the only way is to write a 
Serializer that does this inclusion. Cocoon uses SAX events between 
components, so I think all other forms require parsing of the RMI-XML.
