Sorry, but that's not correct. If you get an "Integrity PTF" and you
won't know how important it is. Maybe it allows remote access with
QSECOFR privileges? That might be a reason to schedule an IPL, or
apply a workaround.

As it is right now, you might leave yourself exposed for several weeks
until your next scheduled IPL/PTF run. That's not good.
