Well the spec does say:

    The XHTML namespace may be used with other XML namespaces as per
    [XMLNAMES], although such documents are not strictly conforming XHTML
    1.0 documents as defined above.

So it's safe, although it may not be valid or "strictly conforming". However
it is safe, since they won't be confused with HTML tags.
