It is perfectly OK.

Another option is to use LOCALized version of Cyrus Aliases
http://anfi.webhop.net/sendmail/localNalias.htm

P.S.
In bright future ahead sendmail 8.13 will use socketmap protocol [protocol to

session [AFAIK socketmap support has been added to development version of
CYRUS (CVS)]
