Port upgrading - my way

I got a lot of feedback earlier about ways to do port upgrades and I 
really appreciate it.
I know everyone has their own way. For now, I am doing it the following 
way.  I just want to know whether there is any reason I shouldn't be 
doing it this way. In other words, by doing it this way is there a 
potential problem or error that my result?

First I run:

/usr/local/bin/cvsup -g -L 2 /root/cvsup/ports-supfile

My ports-supfile reads:
*default host=cvsup10.us.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
ports-all tag=.

Then I run:

portupgrade -a

That's it.
