I haven't looked at Xinclude yet (except for a quick glance at the docs).
The reason I would like that we implement <include> is that it would be,
as you said, home grown - it wouldn't have any unnecessary stuff nor lack
any ALFS-specific things. And it would be just another handler which looks
nice and clean to me.

And the reason I chose expat in nALFS (and I also had a simple libxml
support long time ago) is somehow similar - simplicity. libxml is much larger
and has a lot of interesting and nice features, but we probably wouldn't use
half of them.

But of course, we could always try it.
