No, this is the preferred usage now.  (As of some recent version of fontspec). From the docs:

"Mapping enables a XeTeX text-mapping scheme, shown in Example 41. Using the tex-text mapping is also equivalent to writing Ligatures=TeX. The use of the latter syntax is recommended for better compatibility with LuaTEX documents."
