Re:  Identity transform (case conversion)
It would really be a nasty bug, in case Mukul got that output.

However, what he got (note the capitalisation) was:

<AUTHOR xmlns:auto-ns1="HTTP://WWW.W3.ORG/XML/1998/NAMESPACE"
xmlns:A="XYZ" xmlns:B="PQR">

Also in the code sample he provided there is no filtering of the "xml"
namespace.

Mukul's statement that:

But this predicate doesn't work as expected, with MSXML. MSXML outputs
xmlns:auto-ns1="http://www.w3.org/xml/1998/namespace" in the absence
of this predicate.

is both contradictory and untrue. Contradictory, because he says "this predicate doesn't work as expected, with MSXML" and then makes it clear what "didn't work" was produced "in the absence of this predicate".

Untrue, because the real result is very different:

xmlns:auto-ns1="HTTP://WWW.W3.ORG/XML/1998/NAMESPACE"

That sounds like a nasty bug, because the XML namespaces spec states that
the only prefix you can bind to this namespace URI is the prefix "xml".
However, the workaround would be to test the namespace URI rather than the
prefix.
