you can't, changing the namespace is changing the name so you can't copy
 <xsl:copy-of select=".">
<xsl:spply-templates mode="newns" select="."/>

together with a mode that changes namespace of every element in the

<xsl:template match="*">
 <xsl:element name="{local-name()}" namespace="http://your.new.ns">
  <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
  <xsl:spply-templates mode="newns"/>
