It's fine, it's just not guaranteed to work after an upgrade, which you noted.

That however is not required. You can copy them into the user-defined flows area so that you don't lose them, and that's all documented in various places where the documentation discusses custom flows.

You could have avoided touching webflow-config.xml and basically touched nothing in system/, only copying things out of it.
