Yes...

Assuming the markups define some attributes as automatically ending up 
as CSS properties with identical names (which is what SVG does, for good 
reasons).  XBL and XUL don't do that, and don't end up with namespace 
conflicts between attributes and CSS properties.

Details, please?  I see no reason why any attribute naming in XUL or XBL 
would be affected by CSS.
