Well, if you are miss shifting in the OEM configuration, short shifters are probably going to make it worse, which you are aware of.If you're using those words in a positive manner, then yes.
I drive a Peterbilt with an Eaton 10 speed for a living. I ruined the M5OD in my 94 F150, AND in my 04 Ranger. This ST shifter feels like it's gonna break soon, and if it hits 3rd while aiming for 5th or 2nd while aiming for 4th one more time, im gonna lose my $#@%.

The ST shifter doesnt break, miss shifting the trans will break things. People have broken cables(very rare) and I know people who can **** up a steel ball, so that point is moot.
The ST shifter has some slop, you could tighten it up in hopes of getting a more positive gear indication.
This would be replacing the shifter cable ends, the shift cable bracket bushings on the trans, and the shift lever base bushings under the shifter. It wouldnt shorten the throw, but it would tighten things up and give you better feedback when you shift. Then if you find shifter travel too long, you could replace the shift arm, or lever.
