How would it work?  Is it just a once-off hack for the front page?  Is
the 'news' content generated from a special pipeline?  

Perhaps we could have a special pipeline for multi-pane pages:

      <map:match pattern="index.html">
        <map:aggregate element="site">
          <map:part src="cocoon:/tab-{1}.xml"/>
          <map:part src="cocoon:/menu-{1}.xml"/>
          <map:part src="cocoon:/body-{1}.xml"/>
          <map:part src="cocoon:/body-news-{1}.xml"/>
          <map:part src="cocoon:/body-calendar-{1}.xml"/>
        <map:call resource="skinit">
          <map:parameter name="type" value="site2xhtml.xsl"/>
          <map:parameter name="aggregated" value="true"/>
          <map:parameter name="path" value="{0}"/>
