I apply same heavily customized stylesheets to both DB4/DB5 documents. I am afraid there is no ROI for rewriting styles to NS variant and then to maintain both versions.

This could work in some environments, but not applicable in documents composed from XIncludes located in nested subfolders. 

In my new customization I am tweaking <xsl:template name="process.image">. Once the image file path is determined, it is then truncated using $base.dir parameter (with some additional processing specific to my environment).
