If that is where you want them, that is where they should be.

Some older IMAP servers required mailboxes to all be under INBOX, but 
that was an artifact of server-side implementation details. As long as 
your IMAP server does not refuse to create top-level mailboxes, it's 
perfectly fine for you to do that.

Seems fine to me.
