Based on a quick look at the source for the android.view.LayoutInflater, it seems that you can override just these properties:
- the layout parameters
- the ID
- the visibility
Be careful! As noted in the Google's documentation, you've got to specify both layout_width and layout_height in your include statement if you want to override the layout dimensions. This is a noted issue, and Google updated their documentation to reflect it, but there don't seem to be any plans to modify the way <include> works to address it.
