Yes. But keep in mind that changes in the neon lib may be upcoming which
would force you to do that change earlier; quoting Joe from
<http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1807>:

Julian Reschke brought this up a while back: it's a "don't do that"
issue rather than an escaping issue. The element names being used are
not valid according to the XML Namespaces spec:

  "<svk:signature xmlns="http://..."/>"

and indeed mod_dav has no choice but to reject that request. neon 0.25
and later will also reject responses which include these invalid elements."

Best regards, Julian
