No, because the prophecy is turned, it seems, into a major motivation for why Anakin is accepted into the Jedi Order. It is certainly the major motivation for why Qui-Gon makes it his quest to get the boy trained. Han Solo's knowledge of how to pilot a ship is simply a skill- we don't need to know how he aquired it for the plot to work, he only needs to use it. This is not to imply that the Prophecy couldn't or shouldn't be vague. Just that it would be a good thing if it made sense, logically. I think Nordom points out how it doesn't, given the history of the Jedi and the Sith. Heck, even the defenders of the prophecy seem confused about what "bring balance to the Force" actually means: If the Sith, by the virtue of simply existing, unbalance the Force as a whole, then why are the Jedi convinced that the Sith have been extinct? I mean, if the Sith have existed all this time, the Force should have been out of balance for 1000 years. The Jedi might be arrogant and complacent, but surely they should have noticed this over such a long time span? If the Sith have to act to unbalance the Force, then the Force probably hasn't been out of balance for the past 1000 years, and then it makes no sense to accept the boy into the Jedi Order, because there is no problem in need of fixing. The best defence I've seen so far is the notion that he is accepted as a safe-guard in case the Sith have returned, but what proof is presented to the Jedi at the end of TPM that this is actually the case: a Iridonian with scary tattoos and a red lightsaber. And that's proof they have when the heroes come to Coruscant, and yet the Jedi send a grand total of one maverick master and his apprentice to deal with what might be the most significant threat to the Order for the past 1000 years. You'll forgive me if I think that Windu's talk about using "all available resources" rings somewhat hollow to my ears... Maybe we should evaluate the mythical qualities of the prophecy against those in Greek myth. The first one that comes to mind is that of Oedipus: He shall kill his father and bed his mother. Unclear? Mysterious? Illogical?
