I don't know why not other than they are meatier than a traditional tomato and may not have as much juice in the end. I'd peel them though.
In fact I just did a quick search and found...
"The Best Stewed Tomatoes Ever"
10 tomatoes (beef or roma variety)
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
Bring a large pot of water to boil, plunge tomatoes in for 30 seconds. Remove, put immediately in a ice bath.
Peel the tomatoes. Discard the skins.
Dice the tomatoes up to desired size.
In a large pot on medium heat, combine all ingredients.
Simmer for 30 minutes.
Then serve fresh or you can freeze them.
