No worries there, it all comes down that it is your device, do what you wish.
But unlike what feels like in 06-08 when Windows Mobile was king, and usually people hacking their phones actually knew what they were getting themselves into. In the forums these days, I feel that only 5% of people here even know what they are really getting themselves into, and it will only creates more problems when amatures with good intentions but lack of experience make problems for a bunch of others.
Either way, if the rom ends up working, report back and tell us what may be different.
