How safe is the using a medical syringe method to suck back ink through the delivery tubes?
I've be a bit wary of using a syringe directly via the port as you might stretch it a bit too much. Use of a tapered plastic needle/tip as an adapter would provide a good seal. You would probably need to cut the length down to get a good fit but it wouldn't stretch the port too much and potentially damage the seal.

Beyond that it seems to work if that video is anything to go by.
