No.

Profile names can be used to disambiguate. If two extensions use overlapping
syntax (or meta names), the presence of the extension's profile URI allows the
recipient to decide which extension was used, and how to interpret the
document.

The proposed text does not address this use case.

There's another problem in the text in that it suggests different behavior
based on the type of the URLs without telling how to distinguish those (hint:
it's not possible), so I would prefer if the spec just stated what the
attribute's contents is, and would stay silent otherwise.
