If you had a SMIL-aware XProc processor, why would this not be
sufficient?

  <p:declare-step ...>

    <p:pipeinfo>
       timesheet goes here
    </p:pipeinfo>

You might want some sort of attribute on p:pipeinfo to identify which
pipeinfo was about SMIL, but I don't see why the timesheet has to come
at the root.

                                        Be seeing you,
