We (Bruno & I) briefly exchanged two words about this, trying to find 
some reason to get this out of the way. When work is done on the next 
iteration of xReporter, we might as well give the XNI XInclude thingy 
which Joerg suggested a go (I know, this should be discussed on 
cocoon-dev/xml-commons, will move there when it becomes more than just 
some freewheeling thoughts).

Now, there exist already an XInclude Transformer in Cocoon. If we add 
the XNI XInclude thingy onto the start of the pipeline, and someone 
injects other XInclude declarations into the stream using some XSLT 
later on, which should be processed by the XInclude Transformer, there 
is a chance for a mismatch between the features & functionalities of 
both XInclude-providing implementations.

                 XNI                  XSLT              XI Transformer
XML+XInclude  ------>   XML proper  ------>  XML+XInclude  ------> XML

So we must be absolutely sure both implementations work in the same way.

Food for thought.
