I've added the following text:

"The SVG specification states that elements that are not in the SVG namespace,
that are in SVG fragments, and that are not included in a foreignObject
element, are to be ignored. Similarly, _this_ specification does not define any
processing for elements in SVG fragments that are not in the HTML namespace;
they are considered neither conforming nor non-conforming from the perspective
of this specification."

I changed "namespaced elements" to "elements that are not in the SVG namespace"
because all elements are namespaced elements.
I added "that are in SVG fragments" because SVG doesn't make claims about
elements outside of SVG fragments.
I changed your second sentence to be more precise in its meaning; in
particular, I don't want to imply that HTML elements can be used in SVG in
manners that violate the rest of the HTML spec.
I changed "HTML5" to "this specification" throughout to make future maintenance

Please let me know if that's acceptable.
