Wrt. the current schema, yes.

The schema says:

           <element name="description">
             <ref name="text"/>

i.e. a single description. The proposal is to allow multiple 
descriptions, for different locales.

Since there is currently a single license URL, it would means that this 
URL would have to cover all the locales (the URL may use a scheme that 
does not have a machinery for locales). The proposal is to allow per 
locale URLs.
