In XSLT 2.0 there is an <xsl:namespace> instruction designed to fill
this gap.

In XSLT 1.0 the usual circumvention is to create an RTF containing the
required namespace node, and then copy it (which requires xx:node-set):

<xsl:variable name="dummy">
 <xsl:element name="{$prefix}:xxx" namespace="{$uri}"/>



Copying of namespace nodes is defined by an erratum to XSLT 1.0.
