I'm not sure I understand the question. However, if you use Canonicalization 
the <element> will contain a declaration for the namespace associated with 
the "a" prefix. If you use Exclusive Canonicalization, given that the 
<element> doesn't utilize that prefix, and assuming none of its children 
do, then the declaration will not appear.
