In general the rt-kernel can be used for everyday work just as well,
the main concern would be, to my very limited knowledge, security,
because the kernel isn't that widely tested. It also consumes more

You could add the normal kernel any time and just need that if you
don't need the realtime capabilities.

It shouldn't be a problem in any case.
