Maybe you will find this workaround useful:
 - Add a property "path_to_html" to the top folder
   with the value e. g.  "/en/include_html/".

 - Add a property "html_snippet" to the files you want the snippets to
   be included in resp. to a folder, so all the files beneath the folder
   inherit this property.

Then modify your template:

com.opencms.flex.jsp.CmsJspActionElement cms = new
    com.opencms.flex.jsp.CmsJspActionElement(pageContext, request,
com.opencms.file.CmsObject cmsObject = cms.getCmsObject();

String html_folder  = cms.property("path_to_html", "search", "/default/path/");
String html_snippet = cms.property("html_snippet", "search", "empty.html");
// put this at the right place in your template where you want the content
out.println(cms.getContent(html_folder + html_snippet);
