Why does the spec say that? The reason is that the result document might want to use a different default namespace from the source document. The default namespace in the stylesheet can't then be used to refer to both the default namespace in the result document and the default namespace in the source, so they decided it was better to use it for the latter, which means that every namespace in the source document must be referred to (in the stylesheet) using an explicit prefix.
