Thanks a lot, that's really good to know (It would have been even better to see that in some documentation anywhere :-( ).
The remaining question is, does InDesign cache the included files? If not, i replace one bigger Webservice-Script with one small Webservice-Script plus reading a file from local disc. And i think, the second version is not faster as long as the Webservice-call comes from the same machine. So i only get better structure (well at least, something ;-)).
Search for "include", "includepath", "startup" ...
Note that the explanation of application specific startup scripts is a bit lame (almost missing, page 12) in that guide. I can't try at the moment because I'm rebuilding my Server installation right now, but I'd assume you can just follow the pattern from InDesign desktop - e.g. create a folder within the Scripts folder, and nested in that folder another one called "startup scripts" to hold your automatically executed scripts.
