It's possible to do subfiles in COBOL, but I don't think as easy.

During the life of the System/38 enhancements were easy to get into RPG 
III, because it was a platform specific language.  Enhancements to COBOL 
were subject to review by a "COBOL Standards Committee", and consequently 
more difficult to get into the language.

Op codes like READC really eased subfiles in RPG.
