Use something like this:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>

  <xsl:template match="t">
    <xsl:element name="{name()}">
      <xsl:copy-of select="namespace::*[not(. = 'b')]"/>
      <xsl:copy-of select="@* | node()"/>

When this transformation is applied on the following source.xml:

     <t xmlns:a="a" xmlns:b="b"/>

the result is:

     <t xmlns:a="a"/>

so the namespace "b" has been excluded.

Hope this helped.
