That's not possible with the current implementation.  You would need to 
directly modify the code in module configmgr to make that work.  (Like 
adding support for a new kind of configuration layer and hooking that 
into CONFIGURATION_LAYERS in the Components ctor in 
configmgr/source/components.cxx.  But note that the current design is 
built around the decision to read in /all/ configuration data at 
application start, which might be at odds with using data backends other 
than the current .xcd files.)
