Yes, that would be perfectly fine. That being said, if you want to handle different types of documents with different requirements you might wish to check out ReSpec v2. The docs are very sparse but 98% of the stuff works just like v1. One big addition though is that everything's a plugin so you can add your own document types as you please (there's an example of doing just that for the "Robineko Reports" document style in the repository).
