That's not what they mean (I don't think).

Right now, MSIE 5.0 supports the "";
namespace, because they (partially) implemented an early draft.  The
final REC of XSLT 1.0 will probably still use the
""; namespace.  Microsoft appears to
be saying that the old namespace will continue to work, and in the
manner in which it currently works.  The new namespace will work, they
say, in a manner compatible with the processing requirements of the
XSLT 1.0 Recommendation, whatever those are.
