No, in fact it is not, but has to be declared - I was to tired yesterday ...
... If a script requires non-POSIX features from the
shell interpreter, the appropriate shell must be specified in the
first line of the script (e.g., `#!/bin/bash') and the package must
depend on the package providing the shell (unless the shell package is
marked "Essential", as in the case of `bash').

Yes, this is OK.
