I'm not confident of the scenario/requirement yet, but *if* Alice wanted to 
ensure that a prefix is always declared by some other person (Bob) 
corresponding to a attribute value, she could use an attribute with the 
same prefix to force its "visible utilization." However, I'd expect the 
interface between Alice and Bob would be sufficiently close in the cases 
that I think of, that she can pass the prefixes corresponding to QNAMEs to 
Bob; or if Bob really cares (since he's doing the c14n/signing), he can do 
the work of scanning for QNames and adding them to his InclusiveNamespace 
Prefix list himself...
