Hi all,

The specification of the p:set-attributes step (7.1.20) says:

"Each attribute on the document element of the document that appears on
the attributes port is copied to each element that matches the match

Does this apply also to namespace declarations (xmlns:* attributes)? If
so, possible collisions in namespace declarations would need to be

The same problem can be encountered also in p:add-attribute and p:rename
(is it possible to rename an attribute so that its new name contains the
xmlns prefix?)
