If it's something you desire, I wouldn't hesitate. I spent most of my younger years as an automotive detailer and can assure you that the layer of clear coat discarded is minimal. The abrasive compounds work similar to clay bar in that they're really only reactive against intrusions in the paint. Very seldom do blemishes actually require any wet-sanding.
For peace of mind, a ceramic coating would be a good finishing step though.
