It is definitely a concern to use any old and outdated imagery, not just
Bing. But based on experience, Bing usually has the best alignment out of
all the available satellite imagery so it makes sense to refer to Bing (at
first). But any good remote mapper worth their salt should check other
imagery as well to (hopefully) avoid mapping outdated roads and features.
