Really. So let us know how the planned LaTeX3 version will look like.

The FAQ you quote says:
includex enables you to '\includedoc' complete articles (in the way that
you '\include' chapter files in an ordinary report). It doesn't do the
whole job for you, though. You need to analyse the package use of the
individual papers, and ensure that a consistent set is loaded in the
preamble of the main report.
So evidently, it does not do the trick.
Have you decided to keep the preamble style for LaTeX3, or is it not
possible to remove it?
