I'm using the standard xml input as a way to pass parameters to the
xsl stylesheet. Therefore it's occupied. Also, the name of the actual
document to be loaded is dynamic and determined at run-time.

In the original document, these elements existed under a default
namespace. My stylesheet also declares this namespace and also uses it
as default. Since the namespaces match, I shouldn't need to do any
extra steps, right? But since it doesn't work, I assume that the
namespaces are actually mutually exclusive instead of matching. I
checked my earlier project where I did something similar, and saw that
it worked there just fine. The only difference that in there, the xsl
stylesheet had no default namespace defined.

Yeah, but the xsl:copy-of operation copies over all xmlns: attributes,
even for namespaces that are never used in the final output. For
example, if I attach an xml stylesheet to the xml data file,
xsl:copy-of will introduce the xmlns:xsi namespace declaration to all
copied elements (topmost level). And having funky xmlns: attributes
all over my webpage makes it look strange :)
