Using the RDF Validator
http://www.w3.org/RDF/Validator

with owl:=
reports:
FatalError: An invalid second ':' was found in the element type or attribute 
name.[Line = 4, Column = 38]

with owl:not= it reports
FatalError: Element type "owl:not" must be followed by either attribute 
specifications, ">" or "/>".[Line = 4, Column = 42]


So sorry, no. (The actual restriction is the NCName production defined in XML 
Namespaces - which is approximately an alpha followed by any number of 
alphanumerics and some limited range of punctuation ("_" and "-", probably 
some others).
