Try it and see.  You're creating a new user, so you're not going to
stuff up any existing users.

The skel directory populates *new* users, so it couldn't possibly
already have the ownerships set for that new user.  My guess would be
that it'd be filled with root owned files and folders, so that no other
ordinary user could poison things for new users.
