Uh, this makes me think about a possibility to support something like 
"inline definitions" such as:

<definition name="tileB" extends="tileA">
  <put name="header">
    <definition path="/header2.jsp">
       <put name="headerGraphic" value="image2.gif" />
  <put name="headerGraphic" value="image2.gif"/>

Do you think it could be a good solution?
