Default Secondary Fermentation With Fruit?

I am about to dry hop and add fruit to one of my batches. My question is, is it OK to add the fruit and dry hops direciry to the primary fermenter or should I transfer to a secondary to add the fruit and dry hops?

Most people, including me (I'm doing a blueberry Porter this weekend) will use a secondary when using fruit, oak etc...You can dry hop in the primary, however, if you are going to secondary with the fruit, you might as well dry hop it then also.
