perhaps it was:-)

I thought by your phrase 

 I can tell xt not to bother making the output namespace sensitive

that you meant that you could tell the system to not put in namespace
declarations that would otherwise have an effect, this you can't do.
What you can do is just tell it to not put in declarations for namespaces
for which no elements or attributes appear.

XSL can't automatically omit such declarations because the output might
be something that uses (say) xpath in which case some namespace
declarations have to appear so that colon names can be used in attribute
_values_ even if no element or attribute of that namespace appears in
the document.
