I don't know what you mean by "shibboleth url namespace".

If you're trying to ask if you can have an ACS location that isn't within/under the typical /Shibboleth.sso handler base path, no, you can't.

You can change the handler path itself with the handlerURL parameter (and in some cases other changes) but whatever it is, the ACS has to be under the path specified by the setting, and the fact that it happens to be /SAML2/POST or whatever is not really terribly important or useful to change.
