This is the DOM Working Group last call review for the XML Inclusions
(XInclude) Version 1.0 specification [1].

The XML Inclusions draft introduces a new mechanism for general purpose
inclusion. The DOM Working Group is concerned about the XML Processing Model,
in particular the processing order of past, present, and future XML
specifications. We believe that the impact of XML Inclusions on the XML
Processing Model must be addressed by the XML Core Working Group before making
any decision in the DOM API.

Unlike previous versions, DOM Level 3 will define a way to load an XML file
into a DOM tree. It is part of the Load and Save DOM Level 3 module. XML
Inclusion is not part of our requirements regarding this module and would
certainly complicate our current load definition. Therefore we don't plan to add
XML Inclusion as a new requirement for DOM Level 3.

DOM Working Group chair.
