Taking "safe" controlled falls is a fundamental drill emphasized in the Warrior's Way and other things of that ilk. Lots of folds swear by it. Also some (not lots but some) folks get hurt doing it. If it is what floats your boat go for it. Personally I think if your goal is trad then you'd be better off training to not let go and learning how to down climb. If you feel the need to validate your placements just do it close to the ground as has been previously mentioned - safer, quicker and more efficient.
