Thanks for the hint, but I'm afraid the target output element
(xsd:schema) will not accept those blah...

I was using Xalan before and I switched to Saxon ! I'd prefer to conform
to the XSLT standard, if possible, but is there a way ?
For now, I generate a fake "axmlns:prefix=URI" to avoid the problem
and.... replace it with "xmlns" in the output file. I wish I could find a
more elegant solution ;-)
