What you have looks fine if you are using a non-schema aware processor. If you were using a schema-aware processor and validated your input, it would "know" the namespaces in the content of xsi:type and so would automatically copy those namespace declarations just as it does for element names.

Sadly, no. If you specify copy-namespaces=yes, then all namespaces
are copied. If you specify copy-namespaces=no, then the only
namespaces in the output are those generated by namespace fixup.
Namespace fixup happens before validation (it has to, because
validation would fail if the required namespaces were absent). This
means that namespace fixup is not aware of QName-valued attributes.

Ah. Clearly my built in xslt processor fails for some edge cases especially anything related to XSD validation:-) Thanks for the correction.
