I'm ok with that. It certainly fits this section better.
I'm not so fond of the (lack of) transition with the other sentences on data on general, but I can live with it. Especially, given the fact that this recommendation is quite trivial (it applies for any domain), I would be reluctant to put more emphasis on it...
