How to handle the kinect camera's vertical movement while using amcl?

According to the amcl page:

An implementation detail: on receipt of the first laser scan, amcl looks up the transform between the laser's frame and the base frame (~base_frame_id), and latches it forever. So amcl cannot handle a laser that moves with respect to the base.

Since the kinect camera has a motor that moves it up and down, would this cause a problem? Is there an accepted way yo deal with this? Should I just modify the pointcloud_to_laserscan node to somehow compensate for it?
