Concealed fitting behind stove

I had to remove my oven/stove temporarily for some casework repairs. In process the propane piping was damaged in a section of pipe near the final connection to the stove top control valve. When I reinstall the stove I will need to remove this section of damaged pipe. Its small dia soft copper with flare fittings. I need to remove about 10 of tubing. There is lots of room behind the stove where the piping comes up from below into the casework cabinet area where the stove is installed. I am considering cutting the tubing off in this area behind the stove, installing a 18 long braided flexible hose appliance connector to the soft copper pipe (using flare fitting and threaded brass adaptor) and extending the braided hose up to the stove control valve for the final connection. Technically this would mean I have a flare fitting and threaded connection concealed behind the stove.
Thoughts on this? If a leak was suspected, I could access it fairly easily by removing top cover on stovetop removing screws holding stove in place and sliding it partially out of the casework. But, it would not be readily accessible for inspection like the final connection between the original tubing and the stove control valve was
