Well there is currently no solution to this problem. Multiple levels of
top-level elements would actually be one solution that isn't entirely
inelegant. It is a big problem if you see XInclude and XSLT in the same
document to know which to apply first. I think that's part of why
XInclude hasn't taken off.

So yeah, I think we should entertain the notion that 

<xsl:include-doc ...


means apply xsl:include-doc first, then xsl:literal.
