Yes.

Knowing a query grammar, in the sense of being aware of it only, is useless.
You can't go look it up somewhere and then do it, without having the code.

Knowing a query grammer in the sense of supporting it in your software,
requires coding.

As long as you have the coding to support the query grammar, you have to
know the name of the grammar too.  The name is just a string, really -- the
only reason to call it a URI or a namespace is to have some character
restrictions and formation conventions.
