No, it's actually a great idea!

I've transported many cakes (cheesecake and otherwise) in a spring form pan. I usually just release it per the recipe - to make sure the cake doesn't stick to the pan's sides and air can circulate around it as it cools on a rack - then close it back up once cool and cover the top. Very handy - as is using, e.g., a tart pan with removable bottom in the same manner. Never had any problems.
THANK YOU!!! Merry Christmas!!
