In Java at least, XInclude support has been in part of the parser  
layer since JAXP 1.3 (SAXParserFactory and DocumentBuilderFactory  
setXIncludeAware methods). There is no explicit support for  
specifying XInclude processing in the Java StAX API, although it's  
relatively straightforward to layer XInclude processing on top of a  
stream reader using a StreamDelegate.

There is certainly support for XInclude in libxml2, I often use  
xsltproc --xinclude
