Valid, the safety risk is slightly less with lo-power rockets. (although @jlabrasca has some good graphics on the lethality or safety of model rockets and tissue damage)I don't really want to go down as the safety naysayer, but....
We stage LPR rockets all the time without safety checks. It's not really any different to use a timer for 18 mm and 24 mm composite motors.
I will draw a distinction though. Now we have 18mm composite motors. They don't stage immediately like direct/gap staged blackpowder, and they have a pressurization transient that can be different with each flight. Complication must be accounted for
