Let's not mix implementation problems with feature requests, ok ;-)

No need to use the document function. We can use xinclude, cinclude, 
xml. What I need more is:

Yup, that's also the idea.

One thing is the nugget styler, another is the nugget content provider.
Let me explain.
A nugget could have the rss feed results. So the content is the url to 
the feed. The styler is the pipeline that can present that piece of 
content to Forrest. We have those basically already BTW, they are our 
presentation pipelines.

So, given the above, I need to make a pipeline that gets data from Gump 
descriptor, from news, and I'm done with the "get the data" part.

In site.xml then we would have OTOMH a <nuggets> section with each 
nugget as a url, which can be from out of Cocoon or even internal to 

Seems like it makes sense, no?

Sure :-)
