Yes it's fine to start *rc* scripts wih #!/bin/bash.

All other scripts should start #!/bin/bash -p

The reason being, plain /bin/bash will import functions from the environment.
These functions will supplant commands of the same name (e.g. rm, mkdir).
/bin/bash -p does not import functions.

Cheers ... Duncan.
