<egXML xmlns="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/Examples"

in the data -- egXML the element is in this namespace, but the namespace
doesn't have an associated prefix.

xmlns:eg="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/Examples"

on the stylesheet; this namespace has a prefix, locally "eg".

The output doesn't have a prefix defined for that namespace -- you've
excluded all the result prefixes! -- but it knows the namespace has a
prefix, so you get _0.

If you put the prefix on the namespace in the data, the _0 goes away
because you're not feeding the prefix/no prefix dichotomy to the
processor and confusing it.
