Check Valve Question - charging air line from HPA tank?

I recently made a check valve for my Phantom, in the air line and not the bucket changer adapter assembly as is traditional. So basically I can pre-charge the line with a bulk tank then add the bucket changer if I wanted. Would there be any downside to pre-charging the air line with HPA, then switching to 12ies?

Since CO2 is self-regulating I would think not, but maybe someone can see what I'm not seeing. Worst case the HPA equalizes with the CO2 so that some air is in the tank, but 800-900 PSI in the tank would be normal for CO2 anyway.

For what it's worth my set-up will be like this: bucket changer -> check valve -> gas-thru T-stock -> Stabilizer -> valve body. I definitely wanted a check valve since there'd be too much dead air otherwise.
