that's a bad choice of words as the namespace rec defines "default
namespace" as a specific term meaning something else.

I have difficulty understanding what you mean here.
If your top level element in the source has xmlns="http://somenamespace";
then the default namespace in that file is http://somenamespace and all
unprefixed elements are in that namespace.

To select elements in that namespace from XSLT1 you need to have
in the stylesheet and then use
in any Xpath expression or match pattern.

Note that the fact that the source uses a default namespace and
unprefixed elements is irrelevant, you use exactly the same eexpression
in the Xpath if your source had used prefixed element names
<differentprefix:elementname xmlns:differentprefix=http://somenamespace>
