I think so, see:

Actually there are other errors in your document, for example,
the align attribute is not allowed on the div element in XHTML 1.1
plus MathML 2.0 DTD.  You could try more conformant XML processors
like Xerces-J or Xerces-C++.

And, I still wish the validator could support 'application/xhtml+xml'
as soon as possible ... it's important to correctly support XHTML+MathML
documents.
