Re: [xml-dev] RE: Namespaces Best Practice

XSLT processors normally need to process entire input documents but XSLT
is designed so the result can be streamed. This accounts for restrictions
in XSLT, most notably that you can't add attribute nodes after you've
added any element.

It's not possible, using XSLT, to arrange that namespace declarations
are at any place at all as that's entirely up to the processor, but they
are most likely to appear as far down the tree as possible.
