Yes, it is good.....it would be better, spectacular even, had he shifted to another team after 2~3 WC's w/ Ferrari.
Schumacher & Ferrari have left and continue to leave a legacy of how to win...................

Schumacher is the fastest driver around.....
Schumacher is in the fastest package around....
Ferrari's run has gone as long as it has because of the (I hate to use this word) synergy that he brought with him....Todt,Braun,Byrne and all the rest have created an esprit d'corps that's far more stable than that of ANY other team....It takes that kind of stability to produce championship longevity.

I say ( and its probably too late now ) if Schumacher and his family/team were to move to another package, they could achieve repeatable world championships within two years again.

Others, like Williams should be trying to emulate Scuderia Ferrari's complete cohesion. Management absolutely, positively must find a way to identify engineers,drivers,designers, etc that all genuinely want to work together and drop them into a black hole whose event horizon is the world championship, not individual titles, records, poles, etc....those are just outcomes of the greater focus...

Scuderia Ferrari and Schumacher/Barichello have been able to CLEARLY see the big picture for a very long time.
