I don't see anything wrong in being at idle to 1000' (in vmc and starting to spool up at that altitude, no lower) If Atc co-operates and you can manage this from top of descent at a normal descent speed that is very efficient.


But still being clean at 1000' is just not going to work, how are you going to be stabilized, even by 500' ?


That is too late.
