if saxon is using the name representation described in the earlier 
message, the apparent namespaces at the time when the parent was parsed 
cannot affect the correctness of the model produced by this operation. 
neither the bindings apparent when the expressions were parsed nor 
those when the expressions were compiled.

it does not matter what get-in-scope-naemspaces returns.

? (defparameter $a (root (parse-document "<a xmlns:ns1='NS1'><b 
? (defParameter $c (root (parse-document "<c xmlns:ns2='NS2'></c>")))
? (setf (children $c) (children $a))
(#<ELEM-NODE ||::\b 2 #x1693E16>)
? (write-node $c *trace-output*)
<c xmlns:ns2='NS2'><b ns1:x='X' xmlns:ns1='NS1' /></c>
#<ELEM-NODE ||::\c 1 #x169979E>

with the appropriate model for names, it is possible to produce a 
correct result document without any "in-scope namespaces."
