Yes, you can use XHTML technology only to build an EPUB 3.1 book.

For example, you can download this EPUB book, 3Pigs1-3.1.epub, which has the entire "The Three Little Pigs" story coded in a single XHTML file, content.xhtml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <head>
    <title>The Three Little Pigs</title>
  </head>
  <body>

through the door.” The three little pigs said, “Bye, bye mom!” and off 
they went.

<h4>The First Pig</h4>

<p>The first little pig saw a farmer with some straw. So he said to the 
farmer, “Please give me some straw to build a house.” The farmer said, 
“Yes” and gave the little pig a big bundle of straw. The little pig said, 
“Thank you!” and he made a house of straw.
