RE: exclude-result-prefixes required in each imported
This means that the source text can be understand in terms of itself, plus any texts it depends upon (via xsl:include or xsl:import).
If instead, the importing modules settings were used, then you would need to read the set of all modules that depend upon the txt you are reading - a potentially unbounded set - many of it's members might not yet be written.
So this would be a very bad software engineering practice. Fortunately, the XSLT designers didn't do it that way.

It seems exclude-result-prefixes needs to be explicity set for each imported stylesheet, rather than using the value in the importing stylesheet - is that right?
