No, I don't think so, the part you quoted says

The XDM data model defined in [Data Model] is capable of representing either
an XML 1.0 document (conforming to [XML 1.0] and [Namespaces in XML 1.0])
or an XML 1.1 document (conforming to [XML 1.1] and [Namespaces in XML 1.1]),

the xdm data model can only model documents that conform to xml 1.0+namespaces 1.0 or xml 1.1+namespaces 1.1.

Of course the actual external document might be anything 9a comma separated text file, or <:/> or html or anything else but the tree reported by the parser used needs to be representable in XDM, wgich means that element node names have to match the Name production as defined in the relevant namespaces spec.
