Correct. Altering any of Blizzard's functions is a good way to taint. Not all UI code is secure, but taints happen in weird ways.

A better way to hide the PlayerHitIndicator text:

Lua Code:
  1. PlayerFrame:UnregisterEvent('UNIT_COMBAT')

My addon NoCombatText can also hide the text, but it also allows you to configure what you want to show, for both Player and Pet. An addon of the same name here, No Combat Text, just hides the text by clearing the anchor points of the HitIndicator frames. The names are coincidental, as explained in my comment on that addon's page.
