Yes. Or, better

  xmlns:ooxml2="ooxml-v2" ...>

  <xsl:equiv accept="ooxml2" as="ooxml" />

  <xsl:template match="ooxml:blah">

Or even simpler to allow smarter wildcards inside names of matches
including prefixes


  <xsl:template match="ooxm*:*" >...

(Michael: is that currently available? On the cards?)

If W3C said "All prefix matching APIs should be able to use wildcards at
the end of the prefix" and it was implemented everywhere, and backported
to XPath1 too, that alone would give us many ways to do workarounds.

Wildcard matching on the URI would seem to me to be more difficult, but it
would be of some use to.
