Well, the fact that it isn't there is REALLY interesting. Are you looking at the maker.ini in your FM install directory, or a personal copy? I've never seen a C:\Program Files\Adobe\FrameMaker7.2\maker.ini that didn't have it.
So if it is missing, I'd say yes, it'd be safe to add it; you can always remove it if it does something unexpected.
