Apart from p:exec which others have mentioned, you could consider using 
p:http-request to drive GATE. I understand that it does have some 
(SOAP-based?) web services.

It would be really really nice if I could runs a series of GATE processing resources within my XProc pipeline, then do something like schema validation and possibly another XSLT before the end of the pipeline... the material seems to be very thin on the ground so I thought I would come over to the dev list to see what the perceptions/current implementations and practice actually are w.r.t running custom programs within the XProc pipeline. I've not been able to find anything on the MarMail archives either.
