New tables in Xenforo database

I want to add a new table (or a few, possibly) to my Xenforo database so I can have certain data be updated from external systems. This data would then be read by my add-on. Is this safe? Will Xenforo allow manually editing of the database as long as I don't touch the existing tables? Or is there a better method that I may have overlooked?

There's no issue with adding new tables, or even new fields to existing tables - many add-ons do it.
