If you can correctly play the various methods and one facilitates easier movement to the next, that's fine.
Ideally you like to limit movement just because it allows you play more chords faster. But... sometimes you really have to use the shapes that seem more complicated.
So if you can play both well and the alternate shape really is the best way to go, then go for it. But don;t make some goofy grip because it makes your life easy and you don't want to practice and learn the proper one that should be used.
IOW, don't fool yourself. Eventually you need to learn it all. If you know two chords well, use either one as you like.
