OK, but now that the issue has come up, you have to explain it to me and we
should get it in writing (either in the text of the spec or in a comment in the
source explaining why everything is OK).  I had overlooked that part of the
prose, and no matter how the ambiguity is resolved, it was not obvious to me at
first glance how either the original 3.0 or the revised 2.0 stylesheet avoid
losing the namespace declaration for the 'svg' namespace, in your example.  

A few minutes (or more) of leafing through the serialization spec and the XSLT
spec make me conjecture that the reason no code is needed for the case
described is the rule in 5.7.3 of XSLT 2.0 (5.8.3 of XSLT 3.0) that says,
essentially, that the namespace node for svg cannot be dropped here, because
the svg:x attribute is copied out without changing its name.  If some other
rationale explains your conclusion, please record it.
