I certainly wouldn't assume so, Eike.  Mammal paleontology is littered with
lots of  'mices', many of which are less closely related with mice than I
am.  For example, /Afriquiamys/ is a Lower Cretaceous thing from West
Afriquia that was nowhere near being a placental (but could be fairly close
to /Arguimus/), and North American multituberculates enjoy being called mice
as well.  /Cimexomys/ will do as an example.
