in this example I have an order with different typed items. The type is a
QName in an attribute. There are namespaces declared, having the same
prefix as the 'prefix' in the xsi:type attribute. As you can see there are
more namespaces declared as needed (whatever the reason for that case
might be). Now I would like to clean up and just keep the ones that are
'used' in the xsi:type content. The stylesheet actually already does what
I want, but I would like to know whether there might be a better way to do
it, since it looks a little hackish to me.

The only "improvement" I can think of is to simply copy the namespace node rather than reconstitute it.


  <!--identity tranformation; do not copy namespaces; create namespace of
xsi:type-->
  <xsl:template match="*[@xsi:type]">
    <xsl:variable name="var.prefix"
select="substring-before(@xsi:type,':')"/>
    <xsl:copy copy-namespaces="no">
      <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
      <xsl:copy-of select=
            "namespace::*[name(.)=substring-before(current()/@xsi:type,':')]"/>
      <xsl:apply-templates/>
    </xsl:copy>
  </xsl:template>

But, really, I don't see why you would need to change what you have.
