An XML namespace is a name, conventionally a URI or IRI, that can be associated with one or more names used in a document for two main purposes - (1) to disambiguate elements or attributes that might otherwise have the same name; (2) to identify an XML vocabulary (and perhaps also its creator). If you mean, using RDF to validate that an XML instance conforms to a particular definition of an XML vocabulary, then really you are using RDF to validate XML documents, perhaps as an alternative to a DTD or RelaxNG or W3C XML Schema. I don't know why you would want to do this; in particular, be careful not to introduce unintended "semantics", for example by associating a name in an XML document with a URI in a way not expected by whoever created the vocabulary and/or document. Note that it is _not_ intended that namespace URIs be dereferenced.
