Reverse Zone, Can It Be One Big Class B?

The subject is a little off, I have a Class B network masked down to a bunch of Class C networks.
I am replacing an old DNS service where they configured it as one might expect with one reverse mapping file per network. So we have many of these files.
I don't see any reason why I can't treat my reverse mapping file as if it were all Class B addresses. So one big reverse mapping file just like my forward mapping file. This would make management of the reverse mapping file much easier.
This is a smallish internal network, about 900 hosts or so. We're doing no delegation.
So my question is, is there a good reason why I should not do this? It's been awhile since I had a DNS project and have never managed it on a Class B with Class C masked networks before.
