I think it is very understandable to write down the fingering for some altissimo notes as these notes usually have alternative fingerings. So if the most suitable one here is different from the one you usually use, you should do that as well. Please note some books even mention 30 fingerings for the highest C. Similarly, string players and piano players mark fingerings all the time. Publishers also print the fingering marked by some famous players.
