Is it meant to be so?

  Yes it's expected. Included files must be well formed, and XInclude is then
defined by merging both infosets. Read the spec it is short:

    "Resources that contain non-well-formed XML result in a fatal error."
cristal clear I think...

Note that the use of XPointer via a fragment identifier allows to include
subset(s) of the included file. See the examples in the spec or libxml2
test suite.
