It just uses the context tag which you include extensions in side it.

  <context name="public">
    <extension name="transfer_to_default">
        <action application="transfer" data="${destination_number} XML default"/>

Doesn't matter.  The include statements pull the files in.  Wrap the stuff in the included file in <include></include> tags.

Anywhere!  It easiest to set up includes like

    <X-PRE-PROCESS cmd="include" data="public/*.xml"/>

Now you can put all kinds of files in the public dir and they will get included when the preprocess runs.  The preprocess runs at start up so you need to restart IIRC.
