Default swap dome tweeter for ribbon?

Hello all, I have a pair of Tyler Acoustics Taylo Reference monitors:
Taylo Speaker Line

I am curious about swapping the existing tweeter for a ribbon tweeter. I really like the ribbon sound, and I'm wondering about the feasibility of a swap.

The Taylo Reference use the ScanSpeak Revelator. Specs and photo here:

I'm cusious about swapping them out for Mundorf AMT2310C. Specs and photo here:

Not knowing much about crossovers, I'm wondering if there are other modifications that need to be done? Or if just a straight swap out of the tweeters is all that is needed? Can any of you crossover / tweeter guru's comment?

Both look to have similar 91 db/W sensitivity, and similar 2000 Hz recommended crossover frequency, so it should just be a straight swap, no?

Thanks everyone.
