No it wouldn't, because it's nothing more than an expensive crutch that reinforces bad practice. It is much more helpful to get the concepts across and have people understand what they are doing (or should be doing) than it is to provide a lookup table which appears to make the circuitous route easier but really just impedes understanding.

All dogma is stupid.
