There's likely a better way, but for this sort of thing I've used an xinclude transformation to tap in from other sources.
Below is a snippet from the sitemap that shows this in action.

Of course, since your source maybe hard-coded, you won't need an xsl to generate the corresponding xi:xinclude element ... you can just have it directly defined. Squirreling it away in config/config.xml and extracting it via an xsl might be the easiest though. 

  <map:match pattern="qstatf~default.xml">
    <map:select type="resource-exists">
    <map:when test="cache/qstatf.xml">
      <map:generate src="cocoon:/cache/qstatf.xml"/>
         | fetch from "/<webapp>/qstatf.xml/~{sge_cell}/{sge_root}" via xinclude
         | (Note: the input xml is irrelevant)
      <map:generate  type="request" />
      <map:transform src="xsl/cocoon/redirect-query.xsl">
        <map:parameter name="clusterName" value="default" />
        <map:parameter name="resource"    value="qstatf.xml" />
        <map:parameter name="baseURL"
      <map:transform type="xinclude"/>
