My personal opinion is that yeah, please go ahead. dvipdmfx is nowadays
maintained in TeX Live without any outside activity, contributors are
few, mostly the Japanese developers fixing bugs.

I would say go ahead, as long as current documents don't break it is
completely fine.

Also this would be very advisable in this case, and I guess we can sort
the problems with libkpse out.

All the best
