Not a problem at all.  The release infrastructure handles this case  
all the time in contrib land (e.g. views 5.x-1.6-beta5 etc, and then  
finally the views 5.x-1.6 official release).

update_status.module version 5.x-2.* (and therefore, update.module in  
D6 core) even handles this case nicely, by not telling you your site  
is out of date and nagging you to upgrade until the official release  
comes out, though it will inform you that the "Latest release" is  
whatever the most current release is (e.g. a 5.2-RC of core).
