Obviously, not as you are painting it.
What is wrong in it?
Nothing, except it looks at the arahant from one perspective only. In that perspective there is no thing that can be said about the tathagata, but in a more mundane sense, which can be used to illustrate the tilakkhana, which is a legitmate of talking about things (but not the full picture), arahants, Buddhas and worldings, grow old, get sick, and die, which is illustrated quite graphically in the Mahaparinibbana Sutta.

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80
