Yes, that does, and that is most likely what validator.nu will do 
eventually.  But there needs to be a clear distinction made between what 
is considered conforming at the DOM level, and what is actually possible 
to represent in the serialisation.

The problem is that the elements and attributes in foreign namespaces 
(excluding HTML, MathML and XLink) cannot be represented in the 
text/html serialisation of SVG.  This means that something that may look 
like a namespace-prefixed element or attribute is not actually treated 
as a foreign namespaced element or attribute, and is thus non-conforming.
