It is indeed legal.  See http://www.id3.org/id3v2.4.0-structure.txt.
Section 5 (Tag Location).

That said... I would not rely on that working.  Any implementation of
2.4 that I have seen has either been incomplete or buggy (e.g. Apple
gets the length wrong since it does not write the 2.4 length out in
unsynchronized form).

If you want to write a "safe" tag that will be read by most things,
stick to 2.3.
