Not the most efficient, but the following will work:

  <xsl:template match="*[starts-with(local-name(.),'Dependent')]"

this will match any element (*) whose local name (that is,
ignoring any namespaces) starts with the string "Dependent"

If it doesn't appear to work, you may need to add a priority="2"
attribute get the this template chosen over others.
