No, it is a different location.

I think the misunderstanding is that the IMSManifest plugin replaces the 
site.xml and tabs.xml format with the IMS Manifest format as well as 
adding repository functionality. This plugin does not do *exactly* what 
you want to do, it allows whole subsites to be pulled from another 
location. At present there is no way of retrieving individual documents, 
this is on my todo list, but when I will find time I'm not sure...

Now that I think about it, it would probably be more appropriate to 
write a small custom sitemap for your project. A few questions first:

1) what format are your source files in
2) what protocol would you use to retrieve them?
3) what output formats do you want to support.
