I don't think that's strictly true. It's certainly possible with XSLT 1.0 to copy namespace nodes from a source document to a result document, and that gives you most of the capability needed; though in the absence of the xsl:namespace instruction it can involve some clumsy work-arounds. There's also sometimes a theoretical risk that prefixes will be changed because XSLT 1.0 permits it - but mainstream processors all do the decent thing in straightforward cases.
