Yeah, well, that doesn't help me because I have the namespace 
declarations already there in the document I want to process and it 
appears that xsl:copy copies over the namespace declarations everytime 
and it's not influenced by exclude-result-prefixes.

And this isn't true if you use <xsl:element name="{name()}">, which 
feels hacky, but what the hell.
