Is a mixture of both MyISAM and InnoDB table types on the same MariaDB 10.3 database 'bad'?

Hi All,

I notice that some of our MariaDB 10.3 database have a mixture of MyISAM and InnoDB table types on them.

Is it inherently "bad" to have both types of table on the same database? Or doesn't/shouldn't it make any difference?

If it is ill-advised, then I guess we'll look into converting all tables to InnoDB, as this seems to be the preferred?

Thx for your thoughts.
