Probably yes. That is how I would understand it. Semantically, this analysis is at least surprising, as appositions normally provide additional information but are not essential in identifying the referent of the NP itself but then there are examples for this too, like King George IV, where IV is both, essential for identifying the referent and an apposition.
It seems to me that such examples are very frequent. Suppose that in a small village there are only two persons called Fritz (a frequent case, I think). Then, in order to identify the referent, appositions would be essential: Fritz der Schreiner vs. Fritz der Lehrer.
