I did try <xsl:copy-of select="xalan:nodeset($dummy)/*/namespace::p"/>.
But the situation remains the same. No namespace created. I have tried both with xalan 2.6.0 and saxon 8. The result is the same: only <p:a/>, without namespace declaration.

Ummmm ... those processors do emit well-formed XML, so if you didn't get an error, and you did get <p:a/> then your "p" namespace is already declared in an ancestor and is already in scope so it isn't needed.

The XML syntax generator will not create a redundant declaration of a namespace that is already in scope.

any other tips are welcome.

If my suggestion below also does not add a namespace declaration, then I assume you already have the namespace declared in scope.

I hope this helps.

I think it would be cleaner if you had in your stylesheet:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:p="";>

then you could do:

<xsl:copy-of select="document('')/*/namespace::p"/>
