While I agree that a miss is as good as a mile, the other consideration is chain line. It's generally considered ideal from center of the front cluster to the center of the rear cluster. Though the range of your derailleur and some other stuff can make the tolerances more foregiving.

Moving the rear cluster over might make shifting to the smallest cog more difficult or cause the chain to rub the front DR cage or even come off the front chain wheel.

But........ if it does not, then we are back to the "a miss is as good as a mile" So if you don't see issues, it's not a problem.
