FOP should also stop to complain about certain foreign elements. The

of namespace URIs which are simply silently ignored (instead of
to write a FOP extension for each namespace). If someone has a
to a namespace URI in his documents that FOP doesn't know about he
add that namespace URI to that list and FOP will fall silent over it.
The same list could be used for handling foreign attributes. This way
you still get important feedback if you've done anything wrong,
tell FOP to shut up where necessary.
Good idea, I like the idea of the ignore-namespace list.
I second that.
Nils' initial patch still seems valid/worthwhile though (even if it
looks more like a quick fix)
The whole property subsystem should in essence only be concerned
about attributes in the FO namespace. The proposed location seems
like the ideal spot to filter these out and, for the future, add any
non-FO attributes to an 'extension property list' that could be
passed entirely to somewhere else...
