I run commflag on currently recording programs all the time. If  
something is recording, I usually wait 15 minutes or so to start  
watching it so I can skip the commercials and generally finish  
watching it just as the broadcast ends.

I don't see why you would want to move the file. You can even allow  
commflag jobs on LiveTV, but it doesn't make much sense since it  
doesn't happen in real-time. So you would have to start watching  
something in LiveTV, hit pause, let commflag do it's thing for a  
little while, then continue watching. At that point, you can just hit  
record and watch it later. :)
