Custom Content with Forge

I’m building a confluence space page app using forge and Custom-UI. Earlier I was planning to store the app content in an external database. But, recently I went through Custom Content API and saw that it can be used to store content as well. It is compelling because it’s essentially unlimited free storage, with search and filtering features as long as each document is 32KB in size.
But all the documentation is around using custom content with Connect Apps. So, I was wondering if custom content is supported with Forge Apps.
From a technical standpoint, I can always call the Custom Content APIs from Forge Backend but haven’t seen any documentation around it.
So, is there any limitation around using custom content with Forge? What should I keep in mind when going down this path?

Documentation that I’ve already went through:
