I'll try (That used to be Jeni's job:-)
add xmlns="" to the element that you want to be in no-namespace.
In an XPath2 API, It's up to that API, in XSLT2 you put default-xpath-default-namespace="...." on any xsl instruction, or xsl:default-xpath-default-namespace="...." on any literal result element to change the interpretation of unprefixed element (and type) names in Xpath expressions within that scope.
Sometimes elements from queries are copied or are in the same namespace as the literals.
Your statement is true, but I'm not sure how it relates to the original statement about xmlns in a stylesheet. Elements that are copied are unaffected by any namespace declarations in the stylesheet.
