I lied in my last reply. Technically you could keep the default no
prefix settings but set 
<!ENTITY % XHTML.xmlns "">
in a local subset,  this would add xmlns="" to everything, which would
take it all out of any namespace.

but you could just as easily set
 <!ENTITY % html.qname    "helloworld" >
which would change the name of the top level element from html to

Changing namespace names is just like changing element names.
It's easy to do, but there's no reason to suppose a stylesheet that
matched the old name will match the new one.
