-1 No, please don't. If you have a browser that does not understand 
XHTML (like IE) don't feed it with XHTML! It's as simple like that. If 
it understands XHTML it also must be able to handle namespace 
declarations and additional XML-specific attributes like xml:space or 
xml:lang. Do you want to suppress them as well?

Such a behaviour might be valid for a HTMLSerializer though. But 
actually I don't care for that one when we have StripNameSpaceTransformer.

Those from core are Xalan's serializers at the end. Those from 
serializers block are own implementations from Cocoon once made by Pier. 
As Cocoon should not write serializer IMO I prefer the core ones. A 
better integration with Xalan community to get our wishes applied to 
those serializers might be desirable (one issue was the closing of tags, 
which must not be closed or consist only of a start tag in HTML IIRC). 
This would make our own implementations superfluous.
