Problem solved. Thanks to George and Michael for the help.  Final
stylesheet is thus:

<xsl:template match="node() | @*">

       <xsl:apply-templates select="node() | @*"/>

   <!-- matches elements -->

<xsl:template match="*">
  <xsl:element name="foo:{local-name()}"
    <xsl:copy-of select="text()|@*"/>

xsl:copy-of will only create an exact copy. To create a modified copy,
you need to recursively walk the document modifying each element as
Something like this:

<xsl:template match="*">
  <xsl:element name="{local-name()}" namespace="(new namespace)">
    <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>

Note also that you should be thinking in first of the expanded-name of
the elements (that is, their namespace URI and local-name) - the
prefixes and namespace declarations will follow.
