I see nothing wrong with doing this.
This is very common and of course there's nothing wrong with it. I think what a lot of us were thinking about in this scenario was the logistics of taking it to another country, particularly when baggage space is so precious and fees keep going up. No one was trying to say that it's wrong or trying to be negative, I think we were all just trying to understand it and help by pointing out potential roadblocks. I know I would hate to see someone go through a lengthy process to get what they want, only to see a minor detail overlooked and it all falls apart.
