I agree that there's a usability problem here. Sometimes you do need to
generate output in a default namespace, for example because there's a DTD that
requires this for validity, or because there's some other bit of software at
the receiving end that isn't 100% namespace-aware.

I think we should put this use case on the requirements list for XQuery 1.1.
Personally I think the right answer is along the lines we adopted in XSLT 2.0:
allow a different default namespace for element names in path expressions and
element names in constructors.
