They're not recommended, but equally, no other system is recommended.  It is entirely up to you and your preference of urls.

Currently, Adaptavist's internal systems are on their own urls (not quite these, but equivalent -,,, and so on).

Neither scheme (or others) are "better" technically, just go with what works best for you.
