Default [Q] Google Edition based ROMs and Safestrap

Hello! I am running 4.3 MK2 on my galaxy s4 and I want to root and use a custom ROM. I understand that you must use safestrap and I am trying to consider my options for roms. I found This ROM which is based on the Google Edition, but has some AOSP features. Would I be able to install this ROM safely using safestrap because it is based on the Google Edition instead of AOSP? I have done a little searching around and haven't been able to find a clear answer about this.

No, you can only install 4.3 Touchwiz roms. 4.3 Google editions rom may eventually work, but currently seems to only cause bootloops.
