If you are used to them I'd think it fine.
The advice is usually for non -users to worry. The wipeout with the foot clipped may twist the ankle. Things happen fast when it goes awry.
I climb steep rocks and hop an -XC frame, I prefer the quick jump off.
Climbing XC, I miss 'em.
Do what you feel comfortable with\with your skill level.
New to freeride, or new bike? Maybe run platforms 'till you get settled.
