I assume it is this bug you're referring to?

I think that one is a bit in the grey zone: the DOM spec puts the
responsibility for creating correct namespace declaration attributes to
the creator of the document.

In DOM level 3 there's a method normalizeDocument() which can cleanup
namespace declarations, the algorithm is described here:

Putting this extra logic in Xalan's serializer would be unnecessary
overhead for cases where it's not needed. Maybe we could make an
equivalent of the normalizeDocument method that works on a dom level 2
document and call that before serializing the document?
