not quite.

"The value specified for the source attribute, when it is supplied as a 
URL, specifies any convenient location from which the relevant ODD files 
may be obtained. For the current release of the TEI Guidelines, a URL in 
the form http://www.tei-c.org/Vault/P5/x.y.z/xml/tei/odd/p5subset.xml 
may be used, where x.y.z represents the version number, e.g. 1.3.0. 
Alternatively, if the ODD files are locally installed, it may be more 
convenient to supply a value such as ../ODDs/p5subset.xml".

The value for the source attribute may any form of URI. A set of 
TEI-conformant specifications in a form directly usable by an ODD 
processor must be available at the location indicated. When no source 
value is supplied, an ODD processor may either raise an error or assume 
that the location of the current release of the TEI Guidelines is intended."
