I think that's right. Excluding prefixes can't cause a document to become
not namespace-well-formed because namespace fixup will put them back if
they're needed.

Note, however, that this might be a problem:

 <p:pipeline exclude-inline-prefixes="#all">
     ....
      <p:group xmlns:d="my-new-namespace">
         ....
          <p:inline>
             <root name="d:foo"/>
          </p:inline>
          ....
      </p:group>
      ....
 </p:pipeline>

Namespace fixup won't "see" the use of d:foo in an attribute *value*
as significant. So you'll get

  <root name="d:foo"/>

and if you needed the binding for d:, you're hosed.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
