Something similar has been proposed recently:
http://lists.whatwg.org/pipermail/whatwg-whatwg.org/2007-April/010801.html

IMHO such includes don't solve the biggest problem of frames - that  
there's only a single usable URL and all actual content is in orphaned  
scraps of documents.

Your use-case is a bit different, but I think such <include> will be  
commonly abused as a drop-in replacement for <iframe>.

I suggest investigating further concept of "ID overlays" instead:
