Yes. (This should be clear from the text/css MIME type registration.)

I believe that many issues have been raised over the years along these 
lines (e.g. the fact that 'font' in SVG 1.0 is not compatible with 'font' 
in CSS1 was raised many years ago -- still not addressed, by the way).

Consider. Would the SVG working group object to the CSS working group 
introducing an <svg:flow> element to the SVG namespace?
