No it doesn't, because you still have a bunch of data in that table that
is specific to one single backend. If you try to import that into
another MythTV system that is not completely identical, you're just
going to break things. You're also missing several supplementary tables
that contain additional program information. This all goes back to the
general idea of not manually tinkering with the database.
Getting back to Karl Dietz's suggestion, there is a script on the wiki
that will generate an xmltv data file from your recording rules, for
re-import on different sources or different machines. I've not used it
or looked through it, and don't know how functional it is.
