Default Illusion Spins

Has anyone tried (or is there a reason not to try) illusion spins?
Illusion spins meaning starting fakie and looking over the opposite shoulder of the spin.

For example, you could go to fakie, look over your right shoulder, and throw a lefty 540 off of a launch. You could even do an illusion spin into a grind.

Is there any sign of people doing this, and is there any appeal in doing it to make a trick harder or provide a different aesthetic?

just an update on my trying of the illusion spins....
I did them with a 180 and my friend said that at first it looked odd but after practicing it started to look pretty steezy. i didn get to doing it with a 360 but i wish that someone else would do it.
