I think that's absolutely fine. And then your 10k goes in your list manager and you can even reference your 30k and 20k in your project name or entry.

So as part of the Horizons of Focus review I'll move the 10k I want to start working on over to my list manager. I don't ever 'action' them in the mindmap.
I do leave a copy in the mindmap because it's a way of tracking my 20k and 30k. This means I have a history of the things I've done for that particular 20k or 30k PLUS a list of potential future 10ks for that 20k or 30k. This is why a list in my list manager did not work for me. In a mindmap, I am able to see what I have done and what I can do for each 40 to 20k items.
I do add a hyperlink to each 10k when it ends up in my list manager so I can quickly navigate to the details if I want to. And I keep a reference in my project in my list manager so I quickly reference the related higher levels if I need to.
Hope this gave more explanation. I definitely avoid having multiple places for 'stuff'. If I could have my mindmap and list manager in 1 tool, I'd go for that - part barring that, this is what I've found works for me.
