Using Game Center Aliases

I have a question about how game center aliases can be used.

My game has a level editor and I use the Parse back end to give every created level its own leaderboard. I'm using game center player aliases for scores so that players don't have to make a new account. I'm just wondering if using them in this way is acceptable by Apple. I'm thinking it's alright, based on what I've read, but I'm not entirely sure. Anyone have more info about this? Thanks

I can't see why that would be an issue, however you obviously need users to be logged in.

When you put that much development in, seems to me it would be wise to shoot them a question (which you can do from dev portal) just to cover your bases. Would suck to not only be rejected for it but then have to recode your whole app!

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.
