IMO it shouldn't be made a transformer, but the underlying 
NamespaceSupport class should be used in every transformer to handle 
start/stop prefix mapping.

I plan to refactor it so that it's easier to use and also to filter out 
namespaces a transformer is supposed to consume (e.g. i18n, ft, 
xinclude, etc).
