--- Comment #2 from Henry Zongaro <zongaro@ca.ibm.com>  2010-06-08 14:59:47 ---
At its teleconference of 3 June 2010,[3] the XSL Working Group directed me "to
slightly modify comment 1 (clarification re XML islands) and ask for
ratification by XQuery."  That was because of a remark I made during the call
stating that item 1 in section 7.1 of the Serialization Recommendation[2]
pertained to namespace nodes on elements that are in no namspace and that item
2 pertained to so-called XML islands, and that such islands are serialized
according to the rules of the XML output method with version parameter set to
1.0 -- which would again imply that undeclaration of namespace prefixes must
not occur.

However, I realized afterward that my on-the-fly reading was incorrect:  item 2
in 7.1 pertains only to how the QName of an element or attribute that is in a
namespace must be serialized, not to how the entire XML island must be
serialized.  Per the first paragraph of 7.1, XML islands "MUST be output in the
same way as a non-empty, inline element such as span."

So, the first item in the numbered list of 7.1 applies to namespace nodes on
any element, regardless of whether that element is in a namespace.  So I
believe my analysis of comment 1 still stands - that no undeclaration of the
prefix "dummy" on element "my:island" will appear in the serialized document,
nor will any undeclaration of the prefix "foo" on the HTML element "strong"
