Is this use of enum ok?

Is there any problem with this code?

class A
{
public:
enum B {C=-1, D = 1, E=2, F = 3, G = 4};
//
//
};

I ask because I've never seen a negative enum value before.

Thanks,

In C++ enumerator values can be negative. I think the only problem will
occur if you try to use bitwise operations on them, where you can loose
the negative sign.
