How important can one little vent be?

Will anything bad happen if I put my bed over a floor vent?

I need to rearrange my room to make space for a chair, but the only arrangement that works puts tmy bed directly over one of the two vents. My bed is currently just a box spring and mattress on the floor, so there would be no circulation at all.
I have two questions:
1. When it's time to run the heat instead of the air conditioning, will this be dangerous? I don't want to set my bed on fire in the middle of the night.
2. How badly will this affect the temperature in my room? I do still have the other vent, and I don't close my door unless I'm sleeping, but I'm wondering if one vent is enough.
Basically, is this a stupid idea? Should I just wait until I can afford a real bed to move stuff around?
