The exclude-result-prefixes option only affects namespaces added to the
result tree from the stylesheet by processing a literal result element.
It doesn't affect namespaces copied from the source document using
xsl:copy-of.

If you don't want the result tree to be an exact copy of the source
(namespaces and all) then you can't use xsl:copy-of, you have to do an
apply-templates walk of the tree changing nodes as you go.
