Yes, since when served as application/xhtml+xml Opera will use a real
XML parser, complete with XMLNS support. Otherwise it'll use the good
old tag soup parser which apparantly does not support XMLNS -- hardly
surprising given that it's not an XML parser :)
Other nice CSSish aspects of O7 include:
Alternate stylesheet support (under the Author/User mode button, along
with a load of bundled CSS options which include banner killing and the
like), although it like Mozilla doesn't appear to save your setting
:hover and friends now work on arbitary elements, although there are
bugs with altering the display of their subelements using them.
Support for other CSS 2 selectors appear to be in there too.
Forms can now be styled (although I'm personally happier that things
like <optgroup> and <legend> now DTRT) ala IE.
Full Mobile CSS support; hardly surprising, given it's mostly just a
subset of CSS 2.
A bunch of vendor specific attributes that might be useful to those
wishing to render generic XML documents with links and images
(http://www.opera.com/docs/specs/opera07/, CSS extensions for XML).
Maybe also useful for playing with XHTML 2 :)

I found an annoying MIME bug about 5 seconds after getting some mail
into it. Plus it (incorrectly) tagged about half my mail as spam.
Nor could I work out how to filter mailing lists etc properly -- i.e.
using List-Id and friends. It will not be replacing mutt, procmail or
SpamAssassin any time soon :)
