If you do that, you might want to put something that cleans up those iptables rules in if-down.d. don't recall if iptables will chain rules if you're -Appending rules, but it might cause issues. Though, I suppose if there hasn't been issue so far with that in your interfaces file, there shouldn't be issue here. That said, its my general rule to make sure things clean up after themselves anyway...
