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.
