Is considered reliable enough as sole bases for creating pre-1500 profiles? [closed]

I see this profile was created with just this source:

My sense is that this is not sufficient, especially for pre-1500.

Are we taking as sufficient for creating a profile?

Material on this site is often good, but not showing all the sources, so the best approach is to write to the editor and try to work with them to get sourcing together.

As far as I can see, it doesn't even satisfy the Pre-1700 profiles criteria:

"A family tree on Geni, Ancestry, MyHeritage, Family Search, or any other user-generated tree (like WikiTree itself) is not a sufficient source for creating a pre-1700 profile. They may be valuable resources and may help you find original, reliable sources, but they must never be the only source"

Absolutely not!  The profile was created with no date and then afterward edited.  The Pre-1500 resource page should be consulted.  Profiles prior to 1700 require reliable sources.  Creating these without reliable sources goes against the honor code.
