Topic - Heel hooking tools while drytooling, fairgame?

Somerset swede basher - on 12 Jan 2013
Dear drytoolers,
I had a play on some steep roof stuff today and found that when I had a deep hook with my lower tool I could sort of heel hook the handle with a foot to steady myself while clipping then lean back down and pull the tool out to carry on once clipped. Is this fair game or frowned upon? It seems a bit odd that you can use the tools with your hands and not your feet, but then again we do love our rules as climbers! I know drytooling gets a bashing on here fairly regularly but this is a genuine question aimed at those who go drytooling.
Thanks
