xmlns:my is not an attribute, it is a namespace declaration. It will be
output by the serializer if the xsd:element node in the result tree
contains a namespace node with name "my" and string value "MyDoc".

If the prefix and the uri are known statically, then generating the
namespace node is quite easy, you just have to declare the namespace in
the stylesheet and use a literal result element to create the xsd:schema
element. If they are only known dynamically, it's more tricky. In XSLT
2.0 there is an xsl:namespace instruction to do it. In 1.0, the
workaround is along the lines:

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

  <xsl:copy-of select="xx:node-set($dummy)//namespace::*"/>

Generating the targetNamespace attribute is a doddle, it's an ordinary
