Mapped drive letter with fsfs ok?

I am running subversion 1.1.1 accessing an fsfs repository across a network
located on a Windows 2003 Server (my box runs Windows XP). I know that
accessing the repository directly using the "file:///" method requires that
the SVN client be on the same machine as the repository. However, if I map
a local drive letter to the server's UNC share (i.e. map drive letter Z: to
"\\MyServer\Repository") it seems to work fine. This seems to violate the
rules of direct repository access. I end up using "file:///Z:/myproject"
which looks to subversion like a local repository. By using this workaround
am I missing something that will cause problems in the repository later?

p.s. I am doing it this way because I only have access to the server share
and cannot load a server process like Svnserve.
Thanks for the insight.
