I wouldn't mind, but crazy purists would complain that if you use this to
indicate an editorial B-flat, then it is semantically incorrect since
B-flat is technically not a musica ficta note.  So it is in general better
to think of them as editorial accidentals used to chromatically inflect
notes for performance, which usually happen to move the notes onto musica
ficta pitches.
