Only concern I would have is whether or not you primed the keg to carbonate the beer. Since you've bottled in the past I'm sure you're familiar withe the concept and took care of this.
In all my brews I skip the secondary in favor of a longer primary to give the yeast time to clean up after themselves. Since you're kegging you can do your 'secondary' inside the corny and give the beer a chance to brighten up. Also, I think you'll find that kegging provides a much, much clearer pour. After the first pint, which will be trub that you want to toss, everything comes out clear as a bell.
