If EMA was some external software that plugged in through the OS or something similar, I could understand your hesitancy. But its an addon - it can only what blizz allows it to do.

In the history of WoW Blizz has indeed changed their code a few times to break addons from doing what was previously allowed (They just did that with wow classic and a LFG type addon.) But Blizz has never taken any action against an addon user for something like that.
Yup! the only thing I would avoid though is strobing - even if it's possible for addons to time things, I think anything in such loop is asking for trouble and it'd be sad we loose follow entirely as a result
