This looks fine to me. The only thing I'd add, for usability, is the  
ability to specify this higher up the tree as well as locally on  
exclude-result-prefixes. I imagine that most pipelines will have  
namespaces that shouldn't be included on *any* inline documents, and  
it would be tedious to have to specify the same attribute on every  

I'd suggest adding it to <p:pipeline-library>, <p:pipeline> and  
<p:declare-step>, but you could just allow it on any element that  
could have a descendant <p:inline>.
