Custom CSS / JS through view inheritance - right or wrong?

A few people have asked how to get your own CSS / JS file inserted into the website or eCommerce without having to create a module.

I found that an easy way was to go to Technical - Interface - Views and create a new view (type QWeb) which inherits the existing view "Website Assets". Then simply add the following code to it:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<data name="website assets frontend checkd" inherit_id="web.assets_frontend">
      <xpath expr="." position="inside">
           <link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/your/file/even/ext/link"/>
           <!-- <script type="text/javascript" src="/path/to/your/js"/> -->


Could someone comment on whether:
a) this is the 'recommended' way to do it
b) any pro's or con's to doing this? (e.g. will it survive future updates?)
