Totally, even just 1-2 sets it doesn't have to be the full 6. I know Tom Martin recommends SLDL as back off for Deadlift work and Pavel recommends what he calls SV exercises (I think) for back off work from the main lift.

Pretty sure Paul Anderson did the same thing with Squats and GMs. At my strongest raw I would generally go to a max squat and back off with GMs.

Good way to go if you're doing 1 top single I'd say.
