Yes, if the entire profile was based on a Guix version that used the
same xdg-utils. But it's a design goal of Guix to allow profiles that
are a "mix" of versions.

Yes. Sometimes this limitation is difficult to work around, especially
if the programming language of the packages in question doesn't easily
permit referring to dependencies — like the Unix shell language.
