Use a mode with the identity template and a specific template for the
elements you want to add the prefixes to, eg:

<xsl:apply-templates select="document('file.xml')" mode="addPrefix"/>


<xsl:template match="@*|node()" mode="addNamespace">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" mode="addNamespace/>

<xsl:template match="head|text|caption" mode="addNamespace">
  <xsl:element name="xed:{local-name()}" namespace="whatever_the_namespace_is">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="@|node()" mode="addNamespace"/>
