Employee Self-Service - Is it OK to use/modify standard portal ESS role?



I have a question regarding the usage of SAP standard portal role for ESS.

We will use ESS pretty much out-of-the-box; make only small GUI-changes as well as take away some of the functionality. Since all page and iView resources in the IMG config point to the standard portal role, I wonder if it is OK to use the standard portal ESS role in our business and make changes to it?

What is best practice? To copy the portal role one in our own namespace and then adapt all relevant backend configuration so that it references my new portal role or can we use the SAP standard one? What if we upgrade?

Thanks for your input!

Best regards,
