Ah, one of $evil_software_giant's bugs in this case is that they require 
namespaces to be bound to a predefined list of prefixes. One of many 
reasons why I want to slap them.

fooble is defined, yep, and I do indeed have XSLT similar to that.

One thing I struggled with - again a non-conformant requirement - 
was coming up with an XSLT stylesheet that forced all the namespace 
declarations onto the root element. It's voodoo, and it possibly only 
works with libxslt.
