The opening will most likely have a lintel over it supporting roof loads. If you keep the same overall width as the existing frame (or smaller) then there shouldn't be any issue.

Since it's upstairs I wouldn't worry too much. But a standard 820 is wheelchair accessible. Which is always a good thing to consider.
