If the door when closed has an inch or so of the edge still inside the frame, then there won't be any wear and tear on the groove or the door's bottom edges, the door will still be in contact with the guide--unless there are teen agers around. I think I'd want to use some aluminum for the guide so I never had to replace it. And I'd round over the edges near the pocket opening to keep a squared leading edge from eventually tearing up the groove. Repairing a pocket door inside the pocket doesn't sound like much fun.
If this is for a bathroom, you might want to make sure there's a lock on it. I don't like the indents on the door, I always catch my finger in it--ouch.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
