No, that is a safe way.
Having a separate file with checksums is sometimes better for the
signing workflow. It also allows to sign/verify a bunch of files with
just one operation. It also avoids the need to download and upload all
files to a dedicated signing box. Only since GnuPG 2.2 the latter could
be handled using gpg-agent's remote feature.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
