Sure it is.

  <linearGradient id="g1" x1="0" y1="0" x2="0" y2="100%">
    <stop color="red" stop-offset="0%"/>
    <stop color="red" stop-offset="50%"/>
    <stop color="blue" stop-offset="50%"/>
    <stop color="blue" stop-offset="100%"/>

  <rect x="10" y="10" width="100" height="50" fill="url(#g1)"
        stroke="black" stroke-width="3"/>

Ok, so it may not be immediately obvious that you could use a gradient
for this, but it's possible.  Otherwise, just use paths.
