syntax question

I'm wrestling with a bug, trying to grok
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-rdf-syntax/.

Am I right to believe that 6.12's fourth form, and the second-to-last
paragraph of Section 6, conspire to mean that this RDF/XML:

  <RDF:RDF xmlns:RDF="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" 
           xmlns:foo="urn:foo:"> 
    <RDF:Description about="urn:foo:root"> 
      <foo:bar foo:title="blah" />
    </RDF:Description>
  </RDF:RDF>

is equivalent to this more verbose RDF/XML:

  <RDF:RDF xmlns:RDF="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" 
           xmlns:foo="urn:foo:"> 
    <RDF:Description about="urn:foo:root"> 
      <foo:bar> 
        <RDF:Description foo:title="blah" /> 
      </foo:bar> 
    </RDF:Description> 
  </RDF:RDF>

thanks in advance!
