Deleting meta in messages for some specific user

Hello,

Can i delete the "meta" field content in the "messages" table for specific non existing users without issue ?

To my understanding, the meta field contain only few minor informations like the time of the edit, or the signature of the user.
But the user did unsubscribe.
So, I only need to keep the messages alive (but any information other than the content of the message is not important).

So, can i delete the content of the meta field (as i notice in a lot of cases, the value is even NULL) OR is it better to set the meta field to "a:0:{}" like i did notice in a lot of other cases ?
with "UPDATE phorum_messages SET meta="" WHERE user_id=xxx"

Thank you
