No, <url> takes an <URI> as input [1], <FuncIRI> takes an <IRI>[2] as input. <URI> is a subset of <IRI> and SVG (even in the current WD) requires IRI support. Even so they can be converted to each other. Furthermore SVG1.2T has the following sentence: "Other W3C specifications are expected to be revised over time to remove these duplicate descriptions of the escaping procedure and to refer to IRI directly."
