Moving directory to new partition

I am quite close to running out of space on /

In order to shift some of the storage I simply did a mv /usr/doc

Then ln -s /usr/local/doc /usr/doc

It did what I expected and I have not seen any negative effects from it as
yet. Any reason why this will not work ok?

What about with /usr/man? Can I move that in the same way?
