If your stylesheet doesn't include a namespace declaration for a namespace that's in the source document, there is no way you'll be able to explicitly match nodes in that namespace (apart from using a wildcard, such as *). Remember, whether the source document uses prefixes or not is completely immaterial in XSLT. Forget about prefixes and think only about fully qualified names which consist of a local name and a namespace URI. How that fully-qualified name is represented, whether by a default namespace or a namespace prefix, is immaterial.
