For this part - I have wrestled with this alot, and have not been able to
get it to work for validation.xml or tiles-defs.xml. Search back through the
archives for something like "entity includes" and you will see my problems
with it, and some suggestions for fixing - none of which have worked for me.

I myself am convinced there is a bug in the plugin processor, or in
validation and tiles themselves that make this not possible. It works fine
in struts-config though. When I get free time (yeah right) I plan on getting
to the bottom of this, but I have know idea when it would be.
