It is possible to solve this problem with the dispatcher, however, this 
is integration of content into individual pages. The dispatcher is not 
ideal for this since it would require a new structurer definition for 
each page wanting to include something different.

The xi:include, or XSL processing of the source content is more 
efficient in this particular case. The dispatcher is more efficient if 
you want to put the same content into a large number of pages.
