Dropper Seatpost - Shim?

Im getting a new frame front triangle on warranty replacement. The replacement is 1year newer, having changed from 27.2mm seat post to 30.9mm.

I have a thomson dropper in 27.2mm. Is there any reason why I can't use a shim with the seat post to size it up to the new frame?

(By the way, the bike is a Whyte. I took the frame to my LBS where i bought it, who have been dealing with Whyte for me. Even though I am well over the 5yr frame warranty, the shop rang me to say Whyte have not only sent the frame front end anyway, but because of a change in colour schemes between the years, they have also sent new colour coordinated pivot bolt caps, linkages, seat post and saddle. Big fat thumbs up and thank you to Whyte!)
