I can't see this.

Why can't you put a layer on top of the DOM that provides namespace
processing? For example, you could have an NSNode object that points to
the DOM Node and a set of prefix bindings (and probably a parent
NSNode).   The NSNode objects will be temporary.  You wouldn't have to
reparse the document, and you don't have to keep two trees in memory. 
You can also provide other things in this layer that help XSL
performance such as document order comparison.
