Of course you can. Whether its valid or not depends on the schema you build
to validate the ODD.

if you said <egXML xmlns="http://www.example.com/foo.bar">
then the <egXML> itself would be invalid, and the stylesheets
would have to extended to know what to do with this new beast.

the elements inside <egXML> are normally in the same namespace
as the <egXML> anyway if you use @xmlns (its value is inherited)
