First point: do you want the <a> element to be in a namespace or not? If you
want it in a namespace, your stylesheet must put it in a namespace. If you
don't put it in a namespace, the system may have to undeclare the default
namespace in order to ensure that it doesn't go in one. That's what the
xmlns="" is doing.

Second point: if xmlns:x="yyyy" is being copied from the stylesheet, and if
it really isn't used in the output, you can use exclude-result-prefixes to
get rid of it.

I'm sorry, I don't understand the question. Which file are we talking about
- source, stylesheet, or result?
