No, not if you are making progress. Progress trumps everything and simplicity should be ridden until it fails.

I train variations because I deadlift 2x a week and it helps with recovery. Floor pulling is hardest for me. I trained strictly floor for 4 years, with some assistance work after.

With all this said, if someone is floor pulling over 90% week in and week out I think things can get hairy and I advise them to change. I am not a fan of over 90% work on deadlifts. Too much risk, little reward.
