If you're producing a score (with all instruments), then I see no
problem at all.  If you're producing parts (for example, music that has
th two Clarinet parts on it, or the viola part, or whatever), then don't
use HaraKiri.

I suggest you do this: have one (or more) lilypond files that contain all
the notes and actual music, but no score blocks.  Then have one "master
score" (for the conductor) that uses HaraKiri and has all parts in it, and
also an extra lilypond file for each instrument, which doesn't use HaraKiri
but only displays that particular instrument.

If you really need to use HaraKiri context but don't want the rests to
disapper, then use "r1" instead of "R1".
