Depends on how serious you are :)
Garnome is a testing platform so there are some bugs. But if you are the only user of your main productive environment, you can do it. I don't think it is wise to run garnome in an evironment with untrained average users. Unless you like to be the hero who fixes everything :)

Create a .xsession file in all users home dir, or create some systemwide one (don't which file that should be, read some book on X11)

Update the release number in the makefile of an program for which a new version is available and update it checksums file.

If you compare garnome build on a recent machine to an gnome version compiled for 586 or older on the same machine, probably yes, otherwise barely I think.
