Absolutely.  What we in general recommend for people who wish to do this 
is that you serve your content as application/xhtml+xml to user agents 
that explicitly support it in their Accept header, that you include a 
DOCTYPE, and that you use the suffix .html for your documents.  Note 
that if you want your content to be portable you need to be aware of the 
guidelines in Appendix C of XHTML 1.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1).

The XHTML 2 working group is currently trying to consolidate this 
non-normative information into a single place as guidance for authors 
who want their XHTML family content, including XHTML+RDFa, to work in 
existing user agents.
