Sure.  The problem which might arise is if an application which you
install still assumes the old location.  You will be testdriving the
new configuration and blazing the trail somewhat.  But it looks to be
a pretty safe trail.

At the worst you would need to supply a symlink /cdrom -> /media/cdrom
and everything would be backward compatible.  If you notice that
please file a BTS report about it such that it gets resolved for that
application.  Noting that it is a new thing which is being worked
toward and not a well tested area.
