If anyone is still looking for an answer, I think currently the most elegant solution is:

<launch>
        <include file="local_nodes.launch" />

        <group>
            <machine name="remote_machine" address="1.2.3.4" default="true" />
            <include file="remote_nodes.launch" />
        </group>
</launch>

Tested with ROS Kinectic on Ubuntu 16.04.

Edit: Apparently the machine tag doesn't apply to a specific group, but to any nodes/includes that come after it. So the order in which the tags are defined is important!
