I think that Michael Kay explained why xsl:include is not appropriate
to use for compiled stylesheet modules -- just re-read his first reply
in this thread (in the xsl-list).

A compiled module will need to be defined as something more closed. It
may be a collection of many compiled stylesheets. What is important is
its property that it doesn't use/know about global objects that exist
outside this module (such as global variables, keys, etc). The only
way to pass information to this module is by using parameters.
