I wasn't aware of this requirement. Then indeed we need one more
template for the root element, but it shall copy only those namespaces
which don't belong to the suppressed elements or their descendants:

<xsl:template match="/*">
   <xsl:element name="{name(.)}" namespace="{namespace-uri(.)}">
      <xsl:copy-of select="//*[
            local-name()='abcdHeader' or local-name()='Context'
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
