Activity type as Utility

I've seen that when we use the activity type as Utility, I am not getting the usual activity warning. Also, I am able to use that utility type activity in all the places not only in flows as well. 

Is that advisable to use the Utility type activities to avoid the activity guard rail warning?

I know that some methods are not supported for Utility type and also won't be able to save the activity if the method is not supporting.

My question here is, can we use utility type activity and use it wherever it required not only in the flows to avoid the guard rail warnings but also wherever the activity is really required?

I've tried the above approach and worked for me.

I just want to know that this a better way of using it.
