As an alternative to using <map:aggregate>, you could run your 
wrapper.xhtml through a stylesheet transformation that replaces 
//td[@class='webapp'] with <cinclude:include 
src="cocoon:/my-pipeline-for-whatever" />; then follow that with the 
cinclude transform:

<map:match pattern="something">
  <map:generate src=".../wrapper.xhtml" />
  <map:transform src="replace-td-with-cinclude.xsl" />
  <map:transform type="cinclude" />
  <map:serialize type="xml" />

Does that address what you're trying to do?
