If it was excluded by default, could you not override that by
explicitly declaring it - for example on the output root element?  But
then you'd need to declare it twice if you really wanted it in the

Or perhaps use namespace-alias, just like when you really need the xsl
namespace in the output.

Either way not great, but maybe preferable to have to work a bit
harder in the special case, rather then every time for every
