I think you pointed out yourself that the XSLT 1.0 spec says that the
processor *may* make use of the prefix in the supplied "name" attribute, but
that it isn't required to do so.

The XSLT 2.0 specification is more prescriptive. It says that the processor
*must* make use of the supplied prefix, or absence of a prefix, unless there
is a conflict that makes this impossible.

So I think the answer is: use an XSLT 2.0 processor.
