Style Question - Baseboard thicker than Door Casing OK?

I don't want to replace the Door Casing which is 5/8 inch thick. The baseboard I plan to use is a two piece built up with the bottom portion being a S4S 3/4 of an inch think.

Would it look weird to have a baseboard that is 1/8 inch thicker than the door casing it will abut? I was thinking of beveling the vertical edge of the S4S baseboard where it meets the door casing to soften the transition.

Any thoughts? Am I making a style faux pas?

But only bevel off the 1/8th inch necessary to have the molding "blend" into the door case.
