I'm quite sure that controlling verbosity was not
one of the design goals of XML.  8^)

But there is a cheaper way.  I think you can set the default
namespace of your customization layer to the XHTML namespace.
Then you don't have to put it on all elements.

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

The second xmlns has no prefix, which means any other elements
in the stylesheet file are considered to be in that default
namespace.  That seems to work.

I'm not sure why the xhtml stylesheet doesn't just do it
that way.
