The site.xml and tabs.xml pipelines do not use the xinclude transformer. 
I don't think there would be a problem in adding this functionality to 
core, but you could create a project sitemap that overrides the existing 

There are three locations in which site.xml appears in the generate 
portion of a pipeline, if you add

         <map:transform type="xinclude"/>

After the generation, e.g.

       <map:match pattern="abs-linkmap">
         <map:generate src="{project:content.xdocs}site.xml" />
         <map:transform type="xinclude"/>
src="{forrest:stylesheets}/absolutize-linkmap.xsl" />
         <map:serialize type="xml" />

Do the same for the one location tabs.xml appears in a generate section 
of a pipeline.

This should work, if it does, please provide a patch and add it to our 
issue tracker (see )
