libxml creates XML_XINCLUDE_START and XML_XINCLUDE_END nodes when 
inserting the referenced node(s). When using x:include in a part which 
will be x:included by some other part this will create nested 
XML_INCLUDE_* nodes but php doesn't descend into child nodes between 
XML_XINCLUDE_START and XML_XINCLUDE_END so only the top level 
XML_INCLUDE nodes get removed
