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

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.
