XSL 1.0 - Section 2.2 XSL Namespace

Dear XSL Editors,

Section 2.2 of XSL 1.0 states "Implementors must not extend the XSL 
namespace with additional elements or attributes. Instead, any extension 
must be in a separate namespace."

It is unclear if extensions are allowed to be in "no namespace", i.e. using 
an unprefixed element type name with no default namespace in scope.  Such 
elements are distinguished from XSL elements, but are not in a specific 
namespace as might be implied by the second sentence of the quote.

Therefore, is it an error for an XSL document to have any elements in no 
namespace, or is such an element merely considered to be an extension?

Thank you!
