My reading is yes, and validator.nu at least agrees this is valid

<!DOCTYPE html>
<annotation-xml encoding="text/html"><title>??</title></annotation-xml>

but unlike the svg case MathML doesn't have any special requirements
here, and I don't think it would cause problems if any convenient (for
you) behaviour was defined, or this was declared invalid (and for
example the valid content of annotation-xml encoding="text/html" was the
same as that of html <body>)
