When a wikipage is included with (:include:) its fulltext or section text is  
just inserted in the viewed page, and PmWiki forgets that it came from a  
different page. With two ecxeptions: the markup {$SomeVariable} is rewritten  
to {OtherPage$SomeVariable} in order to retain the context and the  
difference between {$Group} and {*$Group}, and [[links]] are rewritten to  
[[OtherGroup/links]]. This is controlled by the array $QualifyPatterns, and  
you could add your own patterns if you need -- see how they are set in  

I don't know your recipe, but I suppose you could have something like this:

  $QualifyPatterns['/\\(:mydirective:\\)/e'] =
    '"(:mydirective $group.$name:)"';

And let your recipe deal differently with (:mydirective:) and (:mydirective
