reliability of using flash for storage.

I have a question for the experts here.

I want to use part of the flash in a S08JM60 to log data on an occaisional basis.  I won't be wearing out the flash, so that's not a problem.

I will have a bootloader (AN2295) for updating the application,  so locking the flash segment where the app resides is not possible.  (unless I misunderstand the flash block protection mechanism)

How reliable is the flash writing process?  Is it risky to do this without having the flash block protection?

What's the collective wisdom on this?

Thanks!

Bob
