Hmm. On aesthetic grounds (erm - "it's hard to read") I don't like that
particularly - but that's probably more to do with an aversion to very
long titles (which *are* hard to read).

It also worries me a bit on "catching errors" grounds (but I think
Edward Loper should comment on that if *he* has worries, since he's
better at that end of things than I am).

So, in summary, I guess colour me concerned, but not actively against.
