No, it's not. The resolution did not change HTML processing to make it
possible to declare any prefixed namespaces or to cause unprefixed
elements to end up in namespaces other than HTML, SVG and MathML.

The resolution sought to permit (when RDFa in HTML is taken as an
applicable specification) certain syntax, but permitting that syntax
was not coupled with processing model changes that'd make the syntax
declare namespaces.
