Thanks for point that out. I think that most people are more interested in
the lower-level mechanism that we would call "node-level inclusion".
Transclusion could (and arguably should) be built on top of inclusion.

<transclude href="somedox.txt">

can be transformed into:

<scollable_window>
   <include href="somedoc.txt">
</scrollable_window>
