Actually I believe its version on stylesheet and transform, and xsl:version
on the 'Literal Result Element as Stylesheet' form [1].

RDF has the same usage (or ambiguity). rdf attributes on non rdf elements
are prefixed, otherwise they aren't. This means that RDF applications have
to deal with both forms. The RDF Core WG decided recently that they were
to enforce prefixed attributes everywhere.

So the inconsistencies continue...

On reflection I think I'd prefer it if XSLT followed suit...
