Exiting Xbox 360 Arcade Title by Going to Dashboard

Hello All,


Is it safe to exit an Xbox 360 Arcade title downloaded from Xbox Live - the game has its own "Exit Game" option in its Main Menu - by pressing the Guide button and then pressing the Y button to exit to the Dashboard? 


(I know exiting a game this way is fine for disc-based games- and that you can lose unsaved progress in any event- but want to confirm that exiting this way is okay for downloaded titles that have their own "Exit Game" option in their Main Menu.)


I did that recently (on the "Press Start to Continue" screen, before getting to the Select Storage screen) when I opened the Arcade title for the first time, and want to ensure that I did not cause any damage/harm by exiting in this manner. Obviously, going forward, I will be exiting this game through its “Exit Game” option in its Main Menu.
