It is both an element and a "syntax for general purpose inclusion....
merging a number of XML information sets into a single composite

XInclude explicitly avoids definining relationships with XML Schemas and
DTDs, but this kind of non-definition feels eerily to me like Namespaces
in XML, which is concise but has left us debating for the last few
years.  Documents may now be read as describing multiple infosets - one
including XInclude elements as elements, one representing the result of
complete infoset merging, and various infosets representing possible
failure states.

Perhaps XML Pipeline Definition Language [1] will ease this pain,
letting people specify what exactly they want to see in their
canonicalized document.
