Re:  Style sheet to perform namespace mapping from inpu
It wasn't meant to be copied verbatim :)  "old" refers to your N
namespace and "new" refers to N+1.

If your elements weren't prefixed then you'll need to invent a prefix
mapped to the existing namespace, such as "old", and then put all
result elements in the new namespace, using:

( xmlns:old="the N namespace" defined on the root element)

<xsl:template match="old:*">
  <xsl:element name="{local-name(.)}" namespace="the N+1 namespace">
    <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>

You don't need the namespace attribute on xsl:element if you've
already defined the default namespace on the root element, but
personally I like it there.
