No.  The URIs in xmlns attributes are not meant to be resolved and fetched. 
Often, they can be, since the "http" schema is used and people DTD at that
address.  But it is only meant to serve as a unique identifier, not a resource
to be retrieved.

In practice, though, some (poorly written) validators do attempt to fetch the
resource every time.
