Default going to have a shop install a cam but have questions

Going to be camming my lt1 motor.. truck has the dod and the vvt from the factory.. shop wants to leave the vvt on and just swap the cam and leave the dod lifters in.. It is a small stage 1 cam on a daily.. not looking to slap a supercharger on or anything.. Is this a normal practice? I am used to swapping lifters and everything..

truck is a 6/2 silverado

It would actually be better to swap all the lifters, as is done on Gen IV engines, and am only assuming this can be done on a Gen V as well. The DOD-specific lifters have some durability issues, at least on the Gen IV engines.
