Yes, the above is true.
One could perceive a future where viewers of more efficient encodings become
dominant and use the need to use two MIME content-types becomes unnecessary.

I do not support striking the last sentence.
It may, however, be reasonable to add a note that captures the intent
without conveying a message that it is never appropriate to use
To maximize interworking with devices that are only capable of
rendering Profile S or F, "image/tiff" SHOULD be used when
transporting Profile S or F.
