If it's gonna break, it'll do it when you upgrade.

Magically you will no longer be able to hit domain.com/wp-admin/network 
and the error will have to do with too many redirects.

The catch is that for SOME people it works forever and ever. Others it 
dies all the time. I have no idea why, never been able to repro it, and 
it's just a big, weird 'Buh?' moment :(
