XInclude reminds me a little poor ant, which climbs up a wall, falls, climbs, falls again and climbs anyway. Today XInclude became Candidate Recommendation for the third time!

W3C is pleased to announce the advancement of XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.0 to Candidate Recommendation. XInclude introduces a generic mechanism for merging XML documents (information sets) using existing XML constructs-elements, attributes and URI references. Comments and implementation reports are welcome through 28 May.

Let's see what's new. Oh no! They are changing the namespace back. It was "" untill latest Wordking Draft, which made it deprecated and introduced "". Today's Candidate Rec reverts previous "" namespace back. No fun at all. Happily XInclude.NET already supports both namespaces. Other changes are minor ones - accept-charset attribute removing, clarifications, editorial improvements, and minor bug fixes. No big deal so I'm going to update XInclude.NET and nxslt.exe next week.
