There is no such thing as "Atom RSSv2"

There are:

RSS 0.90
RSS 0.91
RSS 0.92
RSS 0.93
RSS 0.94
RSS 1.0
RSS 2.0
and Atom 1.0

It is possible to mix namespaces, but that way leads to confusion and 
Atom should be able to handle all your needs by itself.

So you have an rss element (with no namespace specified), and specify 
the Atom namespace for the atom: prefix.

This line is the only other piece of Atom in the document

http://www.atomenabled.org/developers/syndication/atom-format-spec.php 
has the Atom specification.
