Yes, the requirement is there and I think there's no way of doing it. If you
wanted to generate, for example:

<xsl:variable name="my:var" select="3" xmlns:my="me.uri"/>

you would have to do it by generating an unwanted attribute my:dummy, for
example by writing

<axsl:variable name="my:var" select="3" my:dummy="" xmlns:my="me.uri"/>


PS: copying namespace nodes using <xsl:copy>, as per your previous reply,
isn't guaranteed to work: the effect is undefined.
