Yes sir and no sir. It's block based and can be streamed.

There is a feature in EBML (the underlying part of matroska) that allow 
elements with an unknown size, especially for streaming. So basically 
streaming would work the same as in ogg as you don't have to know the 
size of a Cluster to start writing it.
