No problems here.

It was the 5800/6800/9000 generation that Shimano changed the shifting cable pull ratios. 5600/6600/7800 shifting components play fine with 5700/6700/7900.

As far as braking, cable pull ratios changed between 5600/6600/7800 and 5700/6700/7900. However, the way you are going - 5700/6700/7900 shifters with 5600/6600/7800 brake calipers will work. The other way around will be too spongy.
