What you plan on doing is fine.  It is done all the time for SAR as well 
as public service events.  Essentially the same thing was done just a 
couple of weeks ago (see archives for APRS Day Out).

The mobile digipeating that is frowned on is running the D710 as a 
WideN-n digipeater during your daily commute.  Then you will get the 
nasty-grams.  :)
