Yes you can do this. I do as well by having NIE and other internet
related apps on a card that I only use for the internet or networking.

My heap is usually around that, although more toward 400k. If you don't
slow down or experience a lot of freezes/crashes then are you are fine.
The only time that you are going to be watching your heap is when you
are on the internet (at least in my experience).
