Essentially there are no such things in the Xpath view of the world
things in the no namespace are not considered to be some floating thing
that can be captured into other namespaces, they are just as fixed as
anything else in a namespace which just happens to have an empty name
but behaves in all respects just like a namespace with a non empty name.

use xsl:include instead of import.

the latter:-)

I don't think you've defined what namespace-per instance means.
A given construct has a name which consists of a pair of strings.
Saying the namespace should change at the instance level is just the
same as saying you should be able to change the first letter of
variables on instances.
