you have generated the root element in the namespace but all the other
elements in no-namespace so the serialiser has to add xmlns=""
The solution is to generate all eleemnts in the docbook namespace, then
the serialiser will just put a single declaration on the outmost element.
the easiest way to do that (usually, it depends a bit on your code) is
to move xmlns="..." from where you have it on to xsl:stylesheet so it is
in scope for the whole stylesheet.
