Yep.  You can also mount other locations from the %pre and then grab
files from wherever you mounted.  Or grab files via python's urllib. 
%include in combination with doing a little bit in the %pre provides a
lot of flexibility (which was the entire goal).

How is it ignored?  Should work afaik, but I'd need more information on
exactly how your kickstart config and the included file to be able to
say why it failed to.
