I'm a big fan of XInclude, and I use xmllint and xsltproc extensively

<xi:include href="booktest5.xml"

Am I doing something wrong, or is xmlns() not supported with the xpointer 

  That looks right, and libxml2 has the xmlns() scheme support compiled in
if xpointer. However I don't see any test in the regression suite covering
xmlns(), the code in xpointer.c looks fine though, it registers the binding
in the XPath context. If you could make a tiny example showing the problem
with xmllint ...
  Might be broken though:

paphio:~/XML -> cat test.xml
<bar xmlns="http://foo/"/>
paphio:~/XML -> testXPath --xptr 'xmlns(foo=http://foo/)xpointer(//foo:bar)' test.xml
Object is empty (NULL)
Object is a Node Set :

XPath error : Undefined namespace prefix
