Not at all.... If you save your DOC files as RTF, then use the Import Wizard
to import the file, you can specify to start new topics on page breaks
and/or on specific styles (e.g. H1 and H2), and whether the topics should be
included in the Table of Contents, should have a banner, and whether the
title should be added to the key word list.

Using the Import Wizard is also very nice for automation, because besides
setting up topics, it can create a browse sequence from the file and create
keywords from Index entries. You would lose all this functionality by simple
cut and paste.
