Absolutely! It was taught to me purely as a 'task' to be competed without changing altitude or direction. I would like a more real world scenario, eg simulating a slow turn to final in which I am daydreaming, let airspeed fall during the turn and suddenly find myself in a stall with one wing low. I understand that is a common way to die, so it would seem to be worth to build-in the correct instincts for such circumstances.
