The crux of my question is this:

Is there a way to get namespace prefix declarations into the
root element of the result tree through the XSLT API?

With XSLT 2.0, use the xsl:namespace instruction

I'm stuck with XSLT 1.0

With XSLT 1.0, you can use xsl:copy-of to copy a namespace node from the
source document to the result document.

But that only works if the namespace exists in the source document.

In my situation I am using information found in the source document to create a new namespace.

The intention is that every Attribute element gets recast to a new element in a namespace that is unique to the base.document.

So these:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Dataset xmlns="http://xml.opendap.org/ns/DAP/3.2#" base="http://base.document ">
<Attribute name="Conventions" >CF-1.0</Attribute>
<Attribute name="logname" >olson</Attribute>
<Attribute name="host" >bb0001en</Attribute>

Currently become this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<output xmlns:dap="http://xml.opendap.org/ns/DAP/3.2#">
<ns0:Conventions xmlns:ns0="http://base.document/att#">CF-1.0</ ns0:Conventions>
<ns1:logname xmlns:ns1="http://base.document/att#">olson</ns1:logname>
<ns2:host xmlns:ns2="http://base.document/att#">bb0001en</ns2:host>

Which is correct, but what I am trying to get is this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<output xmlns:dap="http://xml.opendap.org/ns/DAP/3.2#" xmlns:att="http://base.document/att# ">
