  If you can find a definition for an XML document, then maybe ;-)
I think it fits the definition for the stream of bytes coming out of
the XInclude process.
  The XML processing model is probably not something we should explore
too much in the DocBook list, there are other hot channels for this, but
I think it would be reasonable to document the expected processing
steps (possibly multiple path like FO vs. PassiveTex), if we didn't already.

  Well, it's hard to predict a priori in what way people are gonna use
a relatively new tool, I would not constraint the use case while there
have been only little use so far.
