  No, that would be too general. There are actually (at least?) two
different "Portuguese" orthographies in use for writing Galician. AO1990
is only one of them, but it is the only one that I currently can provide
a solid use case for.

  It is also the one that I - as an outside & casual observer - would
expect to become the dominant one, if not the only one. So from that
perspective, yes, your statement would probably become correct over time.
