Repeating my reply to a similar suggestion from Ron Daniel, Jr.:
That proposal is really intended for the inclusion of media types that can
be displayed in a rectangular display region. Our proposal is intended to
permit the inline processing of HTML, including further layout transcluded
from other documents. I still think it makes more sense to propose a new
tag - although I would be willing to consider <INCLUDE>, which was the tag
originally proposed for what is now <OBJECT>!
Further discussion welcome.
Share and enjoy,
