It should be. If you want to patch it over for a bit of extra protection, cut a wee section from that strip of rubber you get in puncture repair kits (assuming you have one in the house) and glue it over the affected area. I've used this on clinchers and tubular tyres in the past and it's worked a treat - right up to the end of the tyre's life.
Do us a favour and modulate yourself out of the window.
