Yes, but you can't use for example its:translate attribute on SVG
element inside HTML5 as prefixed attributes (with the exception of
xlink:href) are not permitted here.

See:
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/single-page.html#attributes-0

Very last sentence under table: "No other namespaced attribute can be
expressed in the HTML syntax."
