Never heard of anyone actually doing it no. The proper way to even bench bleed, was to never bottom out the master cylinder. I guess some people do, and that's what you are talking about. I have a small shop, and only turn out around 300 brake jobs year. About 25% of them being muscle cars. I don't claim to have done everything, or see everything, just not a blown master cylinder.
