"sort of".  Some SVG versions define a default "xmlns" attribute in the DTD, so 
software that loads external DTDs would actually see a namespace attribute 
there.  Software that uses a non-validating parser (such as Mozilla) may not 
load external DTDs and hence may not see the "xmlns" attribute.

That said, I can't recall whether the Adobe SVG plugin also allows lack of an 
xmlns in SVG versions that do not use the DTD in question....
