Looking at the XSLT spec more carefully, I see that it does indeed say in
section 2,

"XSLT processors must use the XML namespaces mechanism [XML Names] for both
source documents and stylesheets. All XSLT defined elements, that is those
specified in this document with a prefix of xsl:, will only be recognized by
the XSLT processor if they belong to a namespace with the URI
http://www.w3.org/XSL/Transform/1.0; XSLT defined elements are recognized
only in the stylesheet not in the source document."

So I think this answers my last question -- which spec *should* we point
to... but it begs the question, why are we told to use
http://www.w3.org/XSL/Transform/1.0 instead of http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xslt
? Is this an oversight in the spec?
