The xinclude worked fine! that was the way to send some string from  
content to the sitemap:

<map:match pattern="mainrequest.html">
   <map:generate src="content/query.xml"/>
   <map:transform src="xslt/prepare-the-url.xsl"/> (this makes a  
xinclude calling to queryrepo pipeline)
   <map:transform type="xinclude"/>
   <map:serialize type="xml"/>

<map:match pattern="queryrepo/**">
   <map:generate src=" 
   <map:serialize type="xml"/>

Thanks a lot,
