#91 Transformation fails to remove NS

v6.5.2

When using Saxon to transform a XML with a custom
namespace the result from the transformation sends the
SAX event
“start prefix mapping” with the custom name space even
if “exclude-result-prefixes” attribute is used (both
the “xsl:stylesheet” element and the element that is
opened after “start prefix mapping” is received.)
There are no elements (or attributes) in the result that
needs the namespace and other engines (namely Xalan
v2.3.1) does not send “start prefix mapping” when
transforming the same document.

    Please do not raise suspected Saxon bugs here: this register
    is only for confirmed bugs.

    Please re-raise this problem on the Saxon help forum or list,
    and supply details of the stylesheet and source document so
    that I can reproduce the problem.
