That sounds like a good way to do it. The documentation is insistent 
about not editing rules files directly mostly because it's easy to do 
manual tweaks in them and forget that Oinkmaster will overwrite the 
rules in the next update. But you obviously understand how it works so 
I don't see a problem with that.
