Updating empty rectangles

Is it safe to update an empty rectangle? I mean, I have a list in which
a few of the rectangles can have rect.w=rect.h=0, can I still use safely
SDL_UpdateRects(screen,number,list) without removing them from
the list?
Where is SDL_UpdateRects defined in SDL source code?

Thank you,
