  Not always possible, for example if you XInclude a text node, well
there is little to help. But you can use 2 things:
  xml:base attribute left by the xinclude process, if you ask for the
    base at a given included point, you may get the proper URI
    if there was room left to put the base attribute at the inclusion
    point (i.e. on an element)
  the XInclude process also turns the original xi:include element into
    an XML_XINCLUDE_START node with all attributes left and also add
    an XML_XINCLUDE_END after the included element(s)

 use xmllint --xinclude --debug to see the associated structures in the
document result.
