Nailing subfloor to rimboard

Rim-board being used 1-1/8

First time ever working with this stuff and even though the pdf says its ok, is nailing the subfloor into this rim-board ok ?

It seams like its only gonna split being a compressed type board thing. Theres one 22' length which runs parallel to the joist with still needs to be nailed. When i layed the subfloor (3/4 T&G plywood) at each plywood seam i nailed a scrap of the joist between the walls top-plate and the sheets, but have not nailed down into the rim-board yet. Also added a scrip of the joist in each corner.

Being the pdf says its ok, i guess that i'll do it tomorrow, just would like ot know peoples opinions and experiences.

Nothing wrong with nailing through the subfloor into the rim material. Just use 8d's.
