Correct for sec. 6.1. But sec. 3.1, as Richard said in the comment, is 
about XML namespaces. In XML you only can recommend prefix, not require 
them. That's different for the its- prefix in HTML (which is not a 
namespace prefix in the XML sense).

Would it resolve the comment by saying in sec. 3.1

"It is recommended that XML implementations of this specification (see 
sec. '4.2 Conformance Type 2: The Processing Expectations for ITS 
Markup') use this prefix"
