It was in my case, but then again, I own almost every step in my process. And I use different branch names in some other cases already.

In complex environments I'd take a more cautious approach, maybe start using automation, like GitHub actions to sync master to main. Roll out hooks to detect dependencies on master etc. That way you can take the slow and cautious approach.
