Once you can see what is happening on the command line,
you can guess what the editor is doing behind the scenes and
then you choose how to do it.

Someone / something has to expand the includes prior to processing.
xInclude is just the same in docbook 5 btw, just that you have
relax NG to work with instead of the DTD's.
