OK, but if I understand you correctly, this changes the behavior. For example, if "foo" contains "1 2", then
(+ (include "foo"))
is (+ (begin 1 2)) with the original behavior and (+ 1 2) with the splicing behavior. Similarly, in a library, with the original behavior the file should contain a series of <command or definition> (which will be wrapped in a begin to form a library declaration), whereas with splicing the file should contain a series of <library declarations>.

I think it would be helpful to define "outermost" by reference to the syntax in §7.1.
