[xsl] updated namespace difficulty

I'm using xsltproc.

The input contains lots of data, and the first xslt contains this:

<xsl:template match="text">
<xsl:element name="form_textarea" namespace="mynms"><b>foobar</b></xsl:element>

the output of the 1st transform contains lots of stuff, including
            <form_textarea xmlns="mynms"><b>foobar</b></form_textarea>

the second xslt is this (complete):
<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <xsl:template match="my:form_textarea" priority="1">
  [[xsl:template match="*" priority="-1"]]
    [[xsl:copy-of select="."/]]

As is, it gives me this in the output, among other things:
<b xmlns="foo" xmlns:my="mynms">SIMONHELLO</b>
which is AFAICT correct. However I also want to copy through the rest of the output from the 1st transform! How do I do that? If I uncomment the 2nd template in the 2nd xslt, instead I get:
<form_textarea xmlns="mynms"><b>foobar</b></form_textarea>

Help is much appreciated. I have hopes to simplify my handling of multiple transformations using namespaces.
