I am downloading loading webpages and munging the markup.  I strip

Can I leave the html unnamespaced or is it ok or  necessary to just
stick in an xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" (or some other)

That appears to be an html question not an xslt one, so this is a _very_ marginal question for this list.

HTML does not have namespaces.

If you are generating HTML 4 or earlier any xmlns attribute is invalid.
If you are generating HTML5 or later
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" is valid but ignored.
