No.  The SVG WG explicitly requested an example illustrating how to 
filter elements based on the namespace URI that works in the general 
case, given that there is no longer a namespace prefix resolution 
mechanism supported in this version of the API.

I'm well aware that with the specific markup example given in the spec, 
the selector "svg>video" would have the same result in this case, but 
that doesn't work for the general case, which is what the SVG WG wanted 
to see.
