First, there is no such published principle for XML itself, though the
Namespaces spec provides an infrastructure for such a thing.
Second, it in no way violates it, because if you recognise the
namespaces/elements being used, you can still figure out that you're
dealing with RDF (and if not, fat lot of good they'll do you anyway).
All the best,
