result elements are not in any namespace, then the they won't be in

processors that would bother with xmlns="" for elements not in any 
namespace unless it were necessary (i.e. redeclaring the default 
namespace) but I suppose it's possible. However, it's not relevant to 
the meaning of the document.

document you actually get from a 1.0 processor, and the output you
