I did that before.
But it turned out handsent MMS could not receieve MMS correctly, if you deleted original Mms.apk.
Not sure whether the new version of Handcent MMS has fixed this issue.
Now I like Mms.apk in CM7. Alos Miui Rom's Mms.apk is pretty good as well.

Because in cm 7 we have stock sms app.
